Deep Dive into what is new in Solaris 11 Express - Sysadmin wise!

Solaris 11 Express is now here for you to download! Keeping up the tradition of constant and relentless innovation, Solaris engineering team at Oracle has brought some great features into the hands of sysadmins, developers, IT managers and users. For this blog, I am pointing you to a particular Oracle Techcast video in which Rick Ramsey talks to Markus Flierl, Dan Price, and Liane Praza, from Solaris Core Engineering about what is new in Solaris 11 Express and discuss those features in depth which make the life of a Sysadmin and IT managers much easier!



This video is full of use cases and I strongly recommend you to watch the video if you want to learn more about how you and your organization can take advantage of the new features of Solaris 11 Express.


Just to give you a peek: Some of the features discussed in this video include



  • Solaris 11 Express can send you an email notification if a software of a hardware fails

  • How you can export a physical Solaris 10 instance into a Solaris 11 Express zone and run it without any modification

  • How you can do upgrades on Solaris 11 Express with a single command! 

And of course, much more! Enjoy! And for more such informative videos, check out the Oracle Solaris Video blog!

My new start at Sun/Oracle

It was little more than 3 years ago that I joined Sun as a campus ambassador. Lot has changed since then, but one thing that still continues to be as it was is the fact that Sun is the best place to work for! Sun has the best "minded" and best "spirited" bunch of people and every day that I go to work, I come back with some new learning. 


Anyhow, now I am going to start a new innings at Sun/Oracle! I will be working as a Systems Engineer and will be based out of Mumbai! What does this mean? Well lots of things, but the most important one is, that I will get to work with Servers and Storage systems! And of course, I continue to get to work on Solaris!! What more could I ask for!! ;)


I am super excited about this new role and I am looking forward to go out in the field and do the thing that I like the most - advocating Sun (and now Oracle) technologies!!! :-)


Keep tuned to this blog as through this blog, I would now be sharing what I learn about systems!


Cheers!
