The guys over at the Oracle Technology Network are hosting a new set of virtual events that are FREE to attend:
- Tuesday 18th November AMER (9am to 12:30pm PT)
- Wednesday 19th November APAC (10am to 1:30pm IST)
- Wednesday 26th November EMEA (9am to 12:30pm GMT)
During the event there will be different tracks on the Database, Middleware, Java and Systems. For the Systems track we've got some great content lined up from Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.
The first two sessions of the day in the Systems track are about setting up OpenStack on Oracle Solaris. We'll walk you through how to take a standard Oracle Solaris 11.2 installation, install and configure the OpenStack packages and get a simple single-node instance up and running. After this we'll deploy our first instance in OpenStack and show you how to create an application golden image. We'll also walk you through some of the additional enhancements we've made to be able to provide read-only VM environments through OpenStack.
There's a little bit of preparation work required for the labs. In our case we'll be using Oracle Solaris 11.2 installed in a VirtualBox environment. If you're interested in joining us for the events, check out the required preparation (there will be different preparation required for some of the other sessions so check out the registration page).
