|8:00 am||System Shakedown|
|9:00 am||Oracle's Dual OS Strategy / Overview of OTN|
Oracle Solaris Track
Oracle Linux Track
|10:00 am||HOL: ZFS||HOL: managing packages, configuring services|

|1:00 pm||Lunch Break|
|2:00 pm||HOL: Managing software with IPS||HOL on Storage Part II: Device Mapper, BTRFS|

Participants of previous OTN Sysadmin Days found the hands-on labs particularly valuable. You get to learn by doing. And what you get to do is install, configure, and manage the technologies of Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Linux in the same way as you would in the real world.
