Oracle OpenWorld 2015 Call for Proposals: Don't Panic, But...

UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED!  You now have until May 6th!  So, now there's absolutely no reason not to share your story.

 



I don't want to freak you out, but: you're running out of time!


Where'd everybody go?

But it's OK.  Really, it is. Because you can do this.  Trust me.  It's not too late. You've got it.

What do you need to do?  Just send us a simple outline of something cool and Oracle Solaris-related to talk about at the upcoming Oracle OpenWorld conference, taking place October 25-29 in beautiful San Francisco, California.

We're not looking for a paper or a presentation (yet); just your idea.  If it's approved, you get a free conference pass, and the opportunity to hang out with your peers and luminaries from the Oracle development teams, learning lots of valuable insights that will make you a hero to your organization (this is the part you should make sure to stress to your management.)

What are we looking for?  We'd love to hear about ways you've used Oracle Solaris technologies to solve a thorny problem, implement a new service, or help you use other Oracle or non-Oracle products.  Are you an Oracle partner?  Tell everyone how Oracle Solaris and your product saved the day for you and your customers. (If you want to see some of the topics others have presented on, take a look at the Oracle Solaris sessions from 2014.)

These are just some ideas; let them be a springboard for your own creativity. If you've got a great story to tell, we can work with you to help bring it to life at the conference.

Are there more details?  There sure are!  Learn more and sign up at the Oracle OpenWorld Call for Proposals web site.

But you need to do it by Wednesday, April 29th May 6th!  Go!

(Oh, and if you just want to hear all the other great sessions, that's cool, too.  Registration is now open!)

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 Solaris Presentations Now Available

Another Oracle OpenWorld is over, and as usual, there was a lot to take in.  Markus Flierl had a great recap, covering what we said about Oracle Solaris, as did Rick O'Herron over on the Oracle Hardware blog, summarizing what's happening with SPARC M7.

Whether or not you got to attend this year, you might want to take a look at the presentations, which are now posted for many of the sessions.  You can go to the entire content catalog (a mere 2,800+ sessions for OpenWorld and JavaOne!), or drill down to just the Oracle Solaris-related sessions via our ever-popular Focus on Oracle Solaris guide.

Here's a last look at some of this year's people, places, and performances (you can click through to a gallery of the images, if you're so inclined).  Hope you can join us next year!

OpenWorld: Solaris Events on Monday

OpenWorld looms! If you're in town by now, you probably already know what you're doing on Sunday as our newly-minted CTO takes the stage at 5 PM, so let's jump ahead to Monday.

Here are some sessions to consider (and yes, there is some overlap here and there...):

...annnd: relax!  You've earned it.  See you Tuesday!

Solaris and Systems at OpenWorld: Where Is Everything?

OK, telling you where everything is going to be is a tall order--this is OpenWorld, after all--but I can tell you where a lot of things are going to be.

OpenWorld is... big.  The numbers are phenomenal, and as you can see from the map above, each year we take over a big chunk of a big city.

So, I'll try to keep it simple: there are three big places to go.

Conference sessions: Hotel InterContinental

This is where all* the Oracle Solaris and systems-related sessions are going to be this year.  The Hotel InterContinental is on Howard Street, just to the west of Moscone West, so it's easy to get to.

Plus... we're serving breakfast here! We're inviting our customers, partners and our own Oracle Solaris and systems technical community to sit down together Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; you can start the day with food 'n' facts.

Breakfast kicks off at 9:30 AM on Monday, 10:00 AM on Tuesday, and 9:30 AM again on Wednesday.

Hands-on labs: Hotel Nikko

You'll find all lab sessions in "The Zone"--the heart of JavaOne.  The Hotel Nikko is on Mason Street between O'Farrell and Ellis; enjoy a nice stroll, or take the complimentary shuttle buses.

Solaris and Systems demos: Moscone South

The Systems DEMOgrounds is once again in Moscone South, and this is where to find our experts when they're not presenting (or eating breakfast).  See the "Focus on Solaris" and "Focus on Servers" documents for a list of some of the things we'll be showing there.

Systems general session, Monday morning: Oracle Plaza

We have one more special event in a special location.  This year John Fowler will be emceeing the Systems general session, Infrastructure Transformation Made Easy with Oracle Systems, at the Howard Street Theater (yes, that's outside, between Moscone North and South) at 11:30 AM Monday.

An outdoor venue has some interesting possibilities, and John always has interesting ideas.  At the very least, it's a chance to get out into the Big Blue Room for a bit.

Tuesday Sep 23, 2014

Oracle Solaris and Systems Customer Panels at OpenWorld 2014

When you're at Oracle OpenWorld, it's an unmatched opportunity to learn more from your peers about how to get the most out of your investments.  You get a chance to talk to people who've had their hands on the product and hear what's worked and what doesn't work--and share your own knowledge and skills with others.

The best places to do this are at the panel sessions. That's where we bring up customers and other experts who will relate their experiences, and where you can ask them the burning questions about what interests you the most. It's a great way to build contacts with experts both inside and outside of Oracle.  And as Oracle Solaris 11.2 brings you an even broader range of powerful features for getting the most out of your investments and simplifying your life, here's your chance to find out, from people who are already deploying it, why it's the best choice for enterprise cloud deployments.

Our Solaris customer panel this year has deep expertise to share on topics that should be near and dear to any IT organization's heart, including security, storage, system management, and scalable infrastructures.

And of course one of our most popular sessions returns: the Oracle Solaris engineering panel, where you can find out even more from the folks who actually put it all together.

All sessions are at the InterContinental Hotel (on Howard Street just to the west of Moscone West); click on a session's title to reserve your spot and add it to your schedule.

Oracle Solaris Hands-On Labs at Oracle OpenWorld 2014

Once again we've got a good selection of Hands-On Labs (HOLs) running through the week at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. They're now ready for you to sign up for in Schedule Builder, so if you're coming to the conference, take a look at the list below, and click on the titles you're interested in to jump to the Schedule Builder entry and enroll.

And don't forget about the "Focus on Oracle Solaris" doc, where you can see the other sessions and demos you can sign up for:

Here are this year's labs -- note that this year, they're all at the Hotel Nikko.

Monday, September 29th

10:15 AM - Enterprise Private Cloud (Part 1): OpenStack Deployment in 20 Minutes
(HOL9821 - Hotel Nikko, Monterey Room)

In this lab you'll roll up your sleeves and quickly deploy a complete enterprise private cloud with Oracle Solaris and OpenStack, featuring Unified Archives, Kernel Zones, ZFS, and Elastic Virtual Switch.

OpenStack basic elements covered include the Horizon management interface, plus Cinder and Swift storage, and Neutron networking.

(Note that this lab is offered twice; sign up for either Monday or Tuesday morning.)

4:15 PM - Enterprise Private Cloud (Part 2): Fast and Secure App Deployment with OpenStack
(HOL9822 - Hotel Nikko, Monterey Room)

(Note that attending Part 1 before this lab is not required, but you should have some fundamental knowledge of OpenStack.  Also, this lab is offered twice; sign up for either Monday or Tuesday afternoon.)

This session covers how use the Oracle Solaris Unified Archives feature and OpenStack to create a golden image environment (in the lab, it'll be an Oracle Database installation), upload the image to a Glance repository, and deploy it to a VM with Nova.

Concepts include securing applications in a sandboxed environment, and compliance checking.

5:45 PM - Using Unified Archives to Deploy Oracle WebLogic Server Cluster on Oracle Solaris 11.2
(HOL9777 - Hotel Nikko, Mendocino I/II)

Unified Archives make it easy to create and deploy application environments across multiple nodes in the cloud. This hands-on lab shows how to quickly deploy an Oracle WebLogic Server cluster with Unified Archives, Zones, ZFS, and network virtualization.

Tuesday, September 30th

10:15 AM - Zero to Oracle Solaris Virtualization Backup and Recovery in 60 Minutes
(HOL7848 - Hotel Nikko, Nikko Ballroom I)

If you're deploying business-critical solutions you need to ensure not only that secure backups are being performed, but that the data can be restored if disaster strikes.

This hands-on lab provides an overview of backup and recovery solutions, including Oracle's backup appliance and tape storage. You will learn and practice next-generation data protection techniques for Oracle Solaris 11 virtualized environments, and what architectures are optimum for protecting, restoring, and recovering data.

10:15 AM - Enterprise Private Cloud (Part 1): OpenStack Deployment in 20 Minutes
(HOL9821 - Hotel Nikko, Monterey Room)

This is the same as Monday's 10:15 AM lab; pick one of the two days.

11:45 AM - Create Quality, Secure, High-Performing Applications on Oracle Solaris
(HOL9805 - Hotel Nikko, Mendocino I/II)

Get some hands-on experience with the Oracle Solaris Studio development suite and find out what differentiates it from what you may be using today.

In this one-hour lab, you’ll learn how to use the Code Analyzer to quickly fix memory corruption issues, eliminate memory leaks, check for commonly overlooked errors, and improve your test suite's code coverage of your test suite. Then, use Oracle Performance Analyzer to profile applications and pinpoint performance bottlenecks to the exact call stack and source line, even in complex multithreaded environments.

1:15 PM - Set Up a Hadoop 2 Cluster with Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris ZFS, and Unified Archive
(HOL2086 - Hotel Nikko, Mendocino I/II)

As you go through this lab, you'll learn about the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and the Hadoop MapReduce programming model, as well as the Hadoop installation process and the cluster building blocks: NameNode, Resource Manager, History Server, and DataNodes.

Find out how Oracle Solaris 11 technologies deliver better scalability and data security as you learn how to enable a HDFS high-availability cluster and run a MapReduce job.

1:15 PM - Oracle Database 12c Data Protection and Multitenancy on Oracle Solaris 11
(HOL9762 - Hotel Nikko, Nikko Ballroom I)

Decisions, decisions: you'll have to pick between this and the Hadoop lab...

Explore different encryption and decryption approaches for securing the new multitenancy environments offered by Oracle Database 12c. Oracle Solaris 11 lets you opt for application-specific encryption and decryption, Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption, and ZFS encryption; find out each option's appropriate use and what its performance impact is to the system.

Oracle Solaris Events at Oracle OpenWorld 2014

It's been a busy year for Oracle Solaris, and as always, Oracle OpenWorld represents the best way to catch up and more.  We've got the whole boat race thing out of our system for a while, so this year you can really focus on the cool stuff we've got to share with you.

Oh, and speaking of "focus on", as usual we have our convenient one-stop-shopping documents that lay out just what we'll be talking about.


Topics you'll be able to hear more about this year include technologies such as OpenStack, Puppet, SDN, and kernel zones, and more general subjects like best practices for secure cloud deployments.

And of course we'll have our annual engineering panel, plus Markus' general session on the state of Solaris and our overall strategy.  These are always among our most popular sessions, so be sure to add them to your schedule.

Stay tuned for even more information on our Hands-On Labs and demos.

UPDATE: As promised, more about:

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 Call for Proposals: Share Your Solaris Insights

It seems like every year, we manage to fit even more stuff into Oracle OpenWorld:


 ...but we're always looking for more. And we're especially interested in what you've got to say.

The Oracle OpenWorld 2014 Call for Proposals is now open, through April 15th. This is a chance for you to share your experience with your peers, and to interact with some of the top Oracle Solaris experts in the world.  Are you an administrator with insights on IPS and AI?  A developer who saw some key performance gains?  Time to put together a proposal and submit it.  But you've only got a few weeks to do it.  (For those of you in the US, it's another great way to put off doing your taxes.)

Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco is always a unique experience in a unique city, and if your proposal is accepted, you'll get a complimentary pass to the show. OOW is September 28th to October 2nd this year.

Eleven Eleven Eleven Plus Two

You probably already know that Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 was not in fact launched on 11/11/11.  We had our reasons, one of the primary ones being that would have collided with Veterans Day. But I'm going to venture a blog post today--even though it's again of course Veterans Day--to catch up on some news for Oracle Solaris 11's second anniversary (plus two days).

Most recently, we had lots to talk about at Oracle OpenWorld -- Markus Flierl gives an excellent recap on his blog.

Also, you can now download the various Solaris-related presentations that were given this year.  Find the list and links at:

If you follow the links above, you'll see there's lots to learn about how to get major benefits from Oracle Solaris 11 today, and you'll also find out about some of the new things we're busily at work on as well.  Onward to year three!

"Systems Central" at OOW13

This year, the Westin San Francisco Market Street is going to be the OpenWorld hub for engineered systems, server, and storage content, which includes both operating systems and virtualization.  We're thinking of it as "Systems Central."

This is where you'll find not only the bulk of the Oracle Solaris breakout sessions, but it's also where our Oracle Solaris engineers and executives will be making themselves available for one-on-one conversations before and after the sessions.

Protip: lunch will be served for attendees here, so this is a chance for you to get some quieter moments away from the throng, and hang out with Oracle Solaris developers after a less hectic meal.

The weather looks like it's going to be nice this year (70º in the city on Monday), so the short stroll from Moscone to the Westin will be a perfect prelude to a deep dive into Oracle Solaris content.

Where to Go? What to See? Glynn Has Some Oracle Solaris Insights for OOW13

As you've no doubt gathered by now, we've got dozens of Oracle Solaris related sessions and labs going on next week, so it may be hard to figure out where you want to be.  Glynn Foster gives his top picks for Oracle Solaris at Oracle OpenWorld, which may help you make some key decisions.

But you'll have plenty of time for more -- so don't forget to check the "Focus on Oracle Solaris" guide, too.

What's the Can't-Miss Oracle Solaris Session at OpenWorld 2013?

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!

Monday, September 23rd, 12:15 PM - Oracle Solaris Strategy, Engineering Insights, and Roadmap
(GEN9021 Westin San Francisco - Metropolitan II
)
