Community at Sun Business .Next 2008

Tomorrow I'll be at Sun's Business.Next 2008 Conference in Tokyo. I'll bring my camera, too. John Fowler, executive vice president of Systems, will be doing the main conference keynote, and there will be tracks on Solutions, Technology, and Community.

The Community track will include Takanobu Masuzuki on Sun's Open Source development and business strategy, and Akira Ohsone with a technical presentation of the new OpenSolaris binary distribution ("Project Indiana"). Also, Reiko Saito will talk about community translation and localization issues, and Hisayoshi Kato and Kenji Funasaki will offer the latest technical advances in OpenSolaris. Additionally, there will be sessions on MySQL and Java and a panel on how companies in Japan are using Open Source software. There will be a booth area for demos and conversation about all of Sun's technology as well. If I don't screw up, I'll post some images over the weekend. I hope I don't get lost.

"Surprised as Hell"

Gabriel Consulting Group just released a "vendor faceoff" study of enterprise guys buying x86 systems. Top Enterprise Choices For x86 Servers: "'Perhaps the biggest surprise was the strong third place showing by Sun Microsystems, a relative newcomer to x86 servers. 'We continue to be impressed by just how many customers have Sun x86 gear in their datacenters ... Even more surprising is how consistently Sun is ranked ahead of Dell on almost every survey criteria. This is pretty good progress for a vendor who has only been in the x86 server market for a few years and still offers a limited product line,' the company said in its report. 'I was surprised as hell,' Dan Olds, principal of GCG, told InternetNews.com. -- David Needle, internetnews.com

Very nice. So we are kicking Dell around, and we are surprising people as our servers are showing up all over the place. Golden. How is Kevin McIsaac missing all this? I guess it's not too late, and I guess CIOs care after all, eh? Imagine that.

Muscles

Quote: It's time to pay attention to Sun's x86 server biz: "The fresh Xeon-based servers from Sun mark the company's most muscular play to date in the x86 realm." -- Ashlee Vance, The Register

I guess we've been working out and bulking up, eh? People are noticing. Very cool.
