The Technical Details: April 29 Oracle Solaris 11.2 Launch

You may have already heard that we're going to hold the Oracle Solaris 11.2 launch in New York City in a few days, and that there will also be a live webcast of the event.

One of the things that the webcast will feature that won't be part of the live event will be additional technical presentations where Solaris engineers will go into more detail about some of the new features that are being added. VP for Solaris core engineering Markus Flierl gives a quick rundown:


If this sounds interesting to you, you should register now. The event starts at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT, with Mark Hurd and John Fowler. Markus then moves on to the more technical part of the in-person event, which will then be followed by the web-only deep-dive presentations.

During the live event, we'll have engineering folks and others on Twitter, tracking hashtag #solaris (apologies in advance to Stanislaw Lem fans).

Next OTN Virtual Sysadmin Day: January 28th, 2014

Glynn Foster notes that another OTN Virtual Sysadmin Day is coming up in just a couple of weeks, and talks about what's in store for the Oracle Solaris 11 track.

If you're not familiar with these, they're half-day, online, proctored hands-on labs, so you can learn more about various system administration technologies. They're also free--but you do need to register, and there's also some prep work to be done ahead of the event, so take a look at Glynn's blog post, and sign up today.

Oracle Solaris Live Chat This Wednesday (June 27, 8-11A PT)

One of the more popular features of last April's Oracle Solaris Online Forum was the Q&A session that ran along with it, so we've decided to do a dedicated chat event.

We'll have senior engineers Bart Smaalders, Dave Miner, Nicolas Droux, David Comay, Darren Moffat and others ready to answer questions.

Register today; we hope you can join us.

Solaris Online Forum tomorrow, 9 AM PT

You may have noticed over to the right, there's that red box mentioning the Solaris online forum coming up tomorrow.

 There's still time to register; we'll have Markus Flierl, the head of Solaris core engineering, discussing what's been going on since the launch last November, plus two of his senior engineers, Dan Price and Bart Smaalders, who will be giving their point of view on not only what's cool in Solaris 11 today, but what they're working on for future updates.

Plus, we'll have a live Q&A running throughout the forum, so you can ask questions directly to various Solaris engineers.

 You can find out more on the other blog,  or just go straight to the registration page.

You're invited: November 9th, Oracle Solaris 11 Launch, New York City

We're throwing a party, and you're invited.

On November 9th, we're holding the Oracle Solaris 11 launch event at Gotham Hall on Broadway in New York City.  It should not only be a lot of fun, but we're bringing our engineers, our execs, and some cool software and hardware, so it's a chance to learn even more about what we've been doing, and get a jump on the latest release of the #1 enterprise OS.

Register now --- space is limited, and you don't want to miss this event.  It's been literally years in the making.

I'm a West Coast kind of guy, so I hadn't heard of Gotham Hall before. With a name like that, my mind naturally wandered to caped superheroes making their entrance by crashing through ornate skylights.

 Well, guess what?  There's an ornate skylight!

Not an approved entrance

"In the center of the unique gold-leaf honeycombed design sits a one-of-a-kind 3,000 square foot stained-glass skylight."
"The regal granite walls and delicate stained-glass skylight are softened and warmed by the glow of the gold-leaf dome providing an extraordinary experience that leaves you and your guests breathless."

So that sounds pretty awesome right there.  But I checked with our event planners, and they said the contract specifically forbids crashing through the ornate skylight.  (Apparently, they've been asked before.)

But if your mind is more focused on 21st century enterprise infrastructure architecture than historic architecture, this is still the place to go.  Come sit down and have lunch with the Oracle Solaris 11 team.

If you're not in the area, you can register for the webcast, too.  But you'll have to supply your own food.
