News, tips, partners, and perspectives for the Oracle Solaris operating system

Some Fun Reading

If you're like me you like new info on how you can do things better, or on features of newly released product versions. So I try to keep up with blogs other folks write and new versions of related products that get released and there are a few things I'd like to share.

Firstly, I'd like to highlight a series of blogs by Joerg Moellenkamp on his c0t0d0s0 blog on how to use Oracle Solaris 11.4 features. Lately he's been on fire! He has released a blog nearly every day and it just keeps on coming. Here is some links to the blogs he wrote in the last few weeks:

As you can see a whole set of super useful articles on a whole range of topics. There are bound to be more interesting blogs coming so check out his blog for new content.

Secondly, I'd like to make you aware of a newly released of Jomasoft's Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework (VDCF) 8.1 which has the following new major functionality:

  • VDCF Web Dashboard 2.0
  • ZFS Encryption
  • Patching Statistic
  • SMF Monitoring Autoclear
  • Free Space Filesystem Monitoring

VDCF is a very useful and powerful alternative for customers who want to run, manage, and monitor LDoms and Oracle Solaris Zones at scale across many systems. For more information on what's new in the VDCF 8.1 release look here, and for more information on VDCF in general and what it can do, you can watch the VDCF webcasts here and read the documentation here.

Happy reading!
