New Year, New Post
By haa on Jan 03, 2008
Since my last post, in 2005, opensolaris.org has become quite a busy site. Check out the huge list of projects and communities. And, during this time, I've changed roles at Sun twice. Back in 2005, I switched to the sun4v kernel team. Then, more recently, I was moved over to the Logical Domains group (aka LDoms) in a reorganization effort. LDoms? LDoms is hardware virtualization for our recent sun4v class SPARC servers. You might have heard of these servers using the CPUs codenamed Niagara or Niagara 2. Anyway, you can find out more about it at the LDoms OpenSolaris community page if that's your thing.
The forums I keep up with are...
I use the forum RSS feeds along with Firefox's live bookmark feature which gives me a pull down menu for each forum/mailing list and then sub menus showing each recent thread. It makes it really easy and I don't have to subscribe to a bunch of mailing lists if I just want to look at a forum from time to time. Here's what it looks like.
As Jason pointed out, at our last San Diego OpenSolaris User Group (SDOSUG) meeting, I gave a presentation on LDoms. At our next meeting, scheduled for January 16th, Ryan has agreed to give a presentation on Xen and OpenSolaris. You could say we have a virtualization theme going on right now.
