- Happenings in the OpenSolaris Storage Community
- This has been a crazy week. I've been running around trying to keep from having too many tasks fall on the floor. Unfortunately I don't think I'm doing very well. I'm sure way too many things didn't get done ... but let's quickly catch up on what good things did happen:
- Project Celeste is now live and Roger Meike blogged a very nice overview.
- The OpenSolaris storage page and ZFS community are now localized! If you read Spanish, French, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese or Simplified Chinese, check out the storage translations or ZFS translations pages.
- The ZFS community was spotlighted on the main opensolaris.org site. The ZFS Crypto project also received a mention.
- I also posted some statistics on how the Storage community has been growing over the past year. The presentations is available from slideshare.net.
- Dominc Kay's whitepaper on “ Configuring J4000 and ZFS in 10 minutes” is available on Sun BluePrints wiki. This blueprint was also in support of the launch of the new J4000 arrays and the ultra cool Thumper v2 (my term, not endorsed my marketing)
- With all this going on, and having some good friends no longer working at Sun –enjoy retirement Mike, I guess it has been a pretty full week.
- Until next time ....
