Oracle OpenWord 2012 - Managing Storage in the Cloud

Oracle OpenWorld 2012

At Oracle OpenWorld this year attendees will get experience using the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance during the Managing Storage in the Cloud Hands-On-Lab. Using Sun ZFS Storage, we will be provisioning Oracle Enterprise Linux Virtual Machines and filesystem shares that can be used with Oracle Database. We will also be using Oracle DTrace Analytics to analyze I/O workloads and drill down to see how the storage is really being used. Hope you can join us!

Oracle OpenWorld Latin America 2011 - Sun ZFS 7000 Storage Appliance Simulator Hands-On-Lab

Oracle OpenWorld Latin America 2011

Oracle OpenWorld Latin America 2011 Renato Takaasi, Wagner Alonso, Igor Gomes and Pedro Rosinholi are facilitating the Sun ZFS Storage 7000 Appliance Simulator Hands-On-Lab this year at Oracle OpenWorld Latin America. The simulator is an Oracle VM VirtualBox virtual appliance and runs the same software that is used on the actual Sun ZFS 7000 Storage Appliances, so this lab gives attendees a great feel for how to use and maintain the storage appliances and why they are so popular. Hope you can join them.

Session Title: Sun ZFS Storage 7000 Appliance Simulator
Venue and Room: Mezzanine - Room 2
Date and Time: Tuesday December 6, 2011 - 13:00 - 15:30

Oracle OpenWorld 2011 - Sun ZFS 7000 DTrace Analytics

Oracle OpenWorld 2011

One of the key areas attendees will get to experience during the Sun ZFS Storage 7000 Appliance Simulator Hands-On-Lab at Oracle OpenWorld this year is DTrace Analytics. We will show how to create serial and random I/O workloads and how to monitor storage I/O operations using DTrace Analytics. The following image shows serial write and random read operations. Notice how when you look at file offsets over time the serial write operations create a signature "stairstep" pattern, and when the workload switches to random read operations the file offsets clearly show a random "speckled" pattern. Hope you can join us!

ZFS Big Hit at 2008 St. Petersburg Tech Days

With over 3200 people in attendance, Sun Tech Days 2008 in St. Petersburg, Russia was another successful developer event, and I had the pleasure of working with my colleagues from the local Sun office. It was nice to return to St. Petersburg. I visited Leningrad in December 1988, so I noticed a lot of change. The city is definitely the Paris of the north. I gave the OpenSolaris Testing and OpenStorage for OpenSolaris presentations during OpenSolaris Day on April 4th. I gave the presentations in the main hall where the keynotes where given and had a great audience of over 150 people. Alexander Belokrylov did a great job with the demos, and I enjoyed engaging with the audience and got cheers everytime I spoke a little Russian. I have never seen better questions, and we had more questions than time after both presentations.

In addition, I supported Jim Hughes, with the ZFS demo during the Solaris Track keynote on April 3rd. Here's a picture of Jim, Kirill Nikonchuk, who setup the hardware and me the night before. We had some USB issues with a PC clone, but once we switch to a Sun Ultra 40 everything worked. This picture was taken unattended by timer from the keynote podium. Also here's a pointer to the ZFS is Smashing Baby video on YouTube.



Later in the day after the keynote, my wife Suzanne and I climbed up to the colonnade on St. Isaac's Cathedral to enjoy the view. Here's a picture of me in a Z-DAY tshirt, which highlights Halloween 2005, when zfs was first integrated into Solaris.
