Tech Talk on the xVM Portfolio - VDI, Virtual Box, xVM Server, xVM Ops Center

As I've mentioned before, I organize regular internal tech-talks at Sun's Grenoble Engineering Center, on a wide range of themes from blogging to virtualization, from collaboration and work-from-home tools to sun-labs projects.

This week it was my turn to animate a tech-talk again, and the theme was on and around the xVM Portfolio.

Software Technical Event at Grenoble Engineering Center

The Sun site I work at in Grenoble is a software engineering center, where close to a couple of hundred of us work on all kinds of software, from Open Solaris kernel internals to xVM, from Open Directory Server to Java SE. Notice a common theme? That's right, open-source is Sun's development and business model for software.

Last week we held a 4-day Software Technical Event, for Sun's parters from France and across Europe, working with the technical sales force based all over Europe to construct an agenda designed by and for software developers, with the Grenoble staff being able to contribute to many of the tracks.

The event, the first of its kind in Grenoble, was a huge success, with over 200 people attending.

As concerns the technology our team is involved with, Common Agent Container and xVM, we were very happy to see a presentation by InfoVista on their performance-management solution that leverages the Common Agent Container DTrace module for remote monitoring of vanilla Solaris 10 boxes using DTrace.

 We also gave a presentation on xVM Ops Center, the Common Agent Container, and the upcoming xVM Ops Center next release as well as xVM Server, which was well received... the slides are available here.
