IMPACT 2009 notes

It's been really busy since I came back from IMPACT 2009. It was a great event. Since then I have busy working on few stuffs for JavaOne and CommunityOne.
The opening ceremony was great and Billy Crystal was really hilarious.
As usual every company does some launches during these event and IBM followed the tradition by putting up "WebSphere Cloud Brust". It was quite confusing to lot of people including me but when I stopped by the Cloud Brust booth I got fair bit of idea about what it is and how it can provide the value add although I expected the booth demo to be live but is wasn't the case.
Lot of session has talked by processor advancement, memory placement, bus speed and what not..During these there were numerous references to Sun Ultra SPARC T2 line of processor which leads the multi-core revolution. You might have got different perspective of different speaker on this but if you have used it you know the power, processing and power efficiency included, of these systems. If you haven't tried your hand then do and know it for yourself.


I expected this to be on linux/xen combo but surprisingly it was based on VMWare hypervisor that was very interesting. Similar deployment toplogy can be achieved using no additional technology overhead with Solaris such  zones/container or if you are ready to try your hands on OpenSolaris you can use xen. Remember OpenSolaris has tool to get your VMWare images working on OpenSolaris.
Here are few important pictures I took.
