Sun Wows the Crowd at Oracle OpenWorld

VNUnet has an article with a great title today:  Sun Wows the Crowd at Oracle OpenWorld.  It discusses Sun's announcements around the Dell/Solaris agreement and Sun xVM.

Yesterday was great fun.  I got to get up on stage with Rich and Jonathan to and give the first public demo of xVM Ops Center.  We showed off managing physical and virtual systems in a collection of different data centers. It was really cool, but was also a bit of an adventure.  There were around 10,000 people in the room, with more on the web cast.  Right at the start of the demo, I hit the log in button and got a "wait" cursor.  I waited, and waited (and started to sweat a little)...  Then I closed the browser, opened a fresh one, clicked log in and was in instantly.  Whew!  After that the demo went off great.  Thanks to Tushar, Carl, Steve S and the gang for pulling it together.

There was tons of other good press about xVM that resulted from the event.  Here are a few...

Just for fun, here's a picture that marketing and style maven Liz took with her iPhone while I was on stage doing the demo.  She had incidentally made me buy new jeans for the event so I wouldn't look too unfashionable.
