Starting again.....

A new job and a new focus


In August last year I changed roles and my focus has changed somewhat also.  I now work for a group in Sun Engineering called PAE.  We are a performance focused team, I have been asked to look into Hadoop on Solaris and try to understand it better and to document my progress as best as possible.  In doing this I feel I can share some of my findings and in particular I hope to share my methods and tools.


So over the next few posts I hope to help others get started looking into Hadoop on Solaris, with some luck I can build a getting started instruction set to help you on your way.

Hello all, please allow me to Introduce myself.......

Hello and welcome to my blog. My Name is Damien Cooke and I work for a division of Sun Engineering called MDE, I am based in Adelaide, Australia. I conduct and manage the Sun engineering assistance provided to ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) developing in Australia and New Zealand.

In my part of the organisation we assist Australian independent software vendors in the development of software on Sun technologies.
In particular we assist organisations by producing presentations, running workshops or assisting with sizing, performance tuning, porting and the preparation of POCs on Sun technologies to propagate the adoption of Sun technologies and to assist Australian & New Zealand ISVs to bring to market their products, ensuring that their developers have any assistance that they need to build world class solutions to run on Sun platforms.

This blog will be generally technical (mainly because I don't have a life) and a little personal stuff if I think of anything others may find interesting.
