If you're looking to find out more about where Oracle Solaris is headed in the near future, you won't want to miss this year's general session, "Oracle Solaris Strategy, Engineering Insights, and Roadmap." What's the "next big thing" for Oracle Solaris?
No, not new colors.
I talked with Markus Flierl, VP of Oracle Solaris core engineering, who will be hosting this session, and "C" is still for "cloud" in our alphabet. He says that among other things, the session will focus on how Oracle Solaris has evolved from a cloud OS to a cloud infrastructure, with examples of customers who are building SaaS, PaaS and IaaS clouds with Oracle Solaris today.
You'll also find out why the Oracle Solaris and Oracle SPARC and x86 systems are the best platform for Oracle deployments, as integration drives database and Java functionality more deeply into the OS and silicon layers.
And of course, the session will give an outlook on what's being worked on for future Oracle Solaris updates, such as next-generation OS virtualization, built-in SDN solutions, and integration with current and emerging standards for cloud technologies.
All in all, a good place to be on Monday; follow the link below to add it to your schedule. Hope to see you there!
