So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

So the time has come for me to move on. I'm leaving Sun and headed off to try a few new things. It's been an incredible experience here and I will miss many of my current and former colleagues.

In case the blogging bug sticks I will be trying out blogging at a new location. So check it out, it will likely continue to be random ramblings based on what I come across...

New Beginnings

Times are changing and my role here at Sun is also changing. For most of the last 3 years at Sun I have been focused on either building Honeycomb, managing a team of engineers or sleeping. So now I am no longer going to going to managing a team of engineers. I'm going to have a more focused community role.

So let me provide a little background on my community involvement in the past. I first started using linux in the 1.2 timeframe (1995/1996) with RedHat 4.0. Since then I have been involved in a variety of different communities, including Perl, FreeBSD, Mesa3D and Autotools. More recently at Sun I have been involved in the Storage community and a leader of the Honeycomb project.

So what is this going to entail? I expect it means I'll be blogging more regularly ;-) I intend to put out more detailed technical information through my blog. I will also be looking at writing more whitepapers to discuss the interesting technologies we have here at Sun and different ways to combine them into solutions. It also means that you will be more likely to see me in person. To aid in you recognising me I look exactly like this:

Well not really, but you will see more of me. Make sure you introduce yourselves to me and we can talk about cool things!

Sun's StorageTek Honeycomb is sticky and sweet


Honeycomb has been reviewed by InfoWorld. They were pretty happy with the ST5800. They did some extensive testing of Honeycomb putting it through it's paces and ended up giving it a 9.3/10 rating. It feels great to see something that we've spent so much time and effort building being so well received in the field.
