New Solaris articles on Oracle Technology Network

I haven't had much time to do a bunch of writing for OTN, but here's a few articles that have been published over the last few weeks that I've had a hand in. The first is a set of hands on labs that we organised for last year's Oracle Open World. We walked participants through how to create a complete OpenStack environment on top of Oracle Solaris 11.2 and a SPARC T5 based system with attached ZFS Storage Appliance. Once created, we got them to create a golden image environment with the Oracle DB to upload to the Glance image repository for fast provisioning out to VMs hosted on Nova nodes.

The second article I teamed up with Ginny Henningsen to write. We decided to write an easy installation guide for Oracle Database 12c running on Oracle Solaris 11, covering some of the tips and tricks, along with some ideas for what additional things you could do. This is a great complement to the existing white paper, which I consider an absolute must read for anyone deploying the Oracle Database on Oracle Solaris.

Enjoy!

OTN Virtual Sys Admin Day (Part 2)

After a very successful event last week with the Oracle Technology Network Sys Admin Day, we're doing it again next week on January 29th at 9am GMT. This virtual event will take the same format with the same content, but at a better timezone for the folks in Europe. As per usual we'll have a set of great Oracle Solaris 11 Hands on Labs for which administrators can step through in their own virtual environments and ask questions live to a panel of experts on anything related to Oracle Solaris.

Register now!

Oracle Solaris Virtual System Administration Day

Over the last year we've been running a number of successful hands on labs around the world for Oracle Solaris 11, including a number of sessions at last year's Oracle Open World conference. These have been a great opportunity for administrators to come along and learn about some of our new technologies with pre-installed, pre-configured virtual machines. While these have been extremely useful for those who were fortunate enough to attend, it doesn't scale too well for the rest of the world.

And that's where the Oracle Virtual System Administration Day comes in....

On Tuesday Jan 15th 9:00am PT and Tuesday Jan 29th 9:00am GMT we're hosting an opportunity for everyone to get involved through a set of virtual hands on labs. They are FREE to register and attend, and contain parallel tracks for Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. On the Oracle Solaris side we'll step through ZFS, Image Packaging System, Boot Environments, Zones and Networking. We'll have a number of people available, including me, to help answer any questions that come up while you step through your lab. For those interested in attending, register here, and make sure to carry out the pre-event checklist to install your virtual machines.

All brought to you thanks to the Oracle Technology Network. Look forward to seeing you there!
