About OP/N1 RPE
By surenssamant on Jan 04, 2006
I didn't explain the role of OP/N1 RPE in Sun in my previous post. It stands for Operating Platforms/ N1 Revenue Product Engineering, previously known as Solaris Sustaining and Engineering. As Solaris 10 is now free for anyone to use, our team has the important responsibilty of bringing revenue for Sun by providing support for Solaris. We "own" the product from the date it is released to its EOL and are responsible for any issues that come up with Solaris. This can include minor problems like improper configuration to major ones like bugs and enhancements.
Approachability and Interoperability is what my group is called in OP/N1 RPE. A & I is responsible for any issues with Patches, Packages, Installation related like Jumpstart and Live Upgrade, Libraries, Solaris Utilities, etc. With the introduction of some cool features like Zones in Solaris 10 our team is busy fixing related teething problems on Solaris 10 and Nevada.
So far, I have worked on Jumpstart, patching issues, utilities, and Zones. Still on a learning phase with these technologies and have to learn a lot.
