OpenSolaris @ SmugMug

SmugMug is my favorite photo sharing site and OpenSolaris is my favorite open source operating system. So the only thing better than pasta with a late season cherry tomato and basil sauce to end my week was reading SmugMug CTO Don McAskill's blog on how he is using OpenSolaris + ZFS + MySQL in one of his production servers.

As for his storage array with battery backed RAM from another vendor, I think we will have something soon to resolve Don's problems. Check back in November and visit Sun's booth at SC08 or attend the Sun HPC Consortium for an early preview. Because no matter if you are running the world's fastest supercomputer at TACC (a Sun Constellation System with > 60,000 AMD Opteron CPU cores), or the world's coolest photo sharing site, our soon to be launched Open Storage products are sure to impress both Don and Jay.

Stay tuned.

p.s., if you want to try out OpenSolaris but don't have a spare server to try it out on, try one of our latest servers free for sixty days (we even pay the return shipping if you decide not to keep the box). And while we are shipping you your trial server, you can always spend a few dollars to try out OpenSolaris on Amazon's EC2 cloud.
