#solaris at OOW2013

If you're attending Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco next week, be sure to stop by and say hello. I'll be around the DEMOgrounds area as well as speaking at these 2 sessions:

Why Oracle Solaris Is the Best UNIX for Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic [CON7513]

Come learn why IBM and HP customers are moving to Oracle Solaris on SPARC for running Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic. This session discusses the unique optimizations in Oracle Solaris 11 for the Oracle stack that have led to 18 world records on real-world benchmarks for Oracle’s SPARC T5 processor and Oracle Solaris. Learn about the most-efficient and most cost-effective way to virtualize Oracle Database or Oracle WebLogic. See how easy it is to update and manage multitenant environments. The session also discusses how Oracle Solaris simplifies private cloud deployments of your software.

Monday, Sep 23, 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM at the Westin San Francisco Hotel

Why Oracle Fusion Middleware Runs Best on Oracle Solaris [CON7278]

Oracle Solaris brings enterprise-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features to the entire Oracle Fusion Middleware suite. From development to deployment, the performance and scalability of Oracle Solaris deliver compelling business advantages. This session focuses on how Oracle Solaris, with integrated Java and virtualization features, can safely and efficiently consolidate multiple application tiers, reducing space and power requirements in the data center. The session also reviews how Oracle Solaris, the first cloud OS, is at the core of Oracle’s engineered systems, delivering platform and software services into public and private clouds.

Tuesday, Sep 24, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM at the Westin San Francisco Hotel

Please see the rest of the Oracle Solaris sessions planned

Hope to see you there!

מיין יידיש טשערנאָוויץ Любимый город Черновцы

And now for something completely different ...

Having experienced emigration at a young age, I often long for that feeling of coming back to the town where I was born; walking the streets I used to walk to school and back, to the local stores and the stadium and back, and finally to the city's central train junction (but not back, yet).   Having matured to appreciate the answer to the question of "why?", there probably couldn't have been a more appropriate time of the year for last night's event to occur.   This Sunday's performance at this year's festival at The Millenium Theater really comes close to getting me "there". Warning: knowledge of Yiddish and Russian is helpful.  

Huge thanks,  Mom (sings), Dad (lyrics), and, naturally, Mr. Boris Berlin (composer and pianist).

DTrace NYC 9/2013

Hey New York/New Jersey/Connecticut techies --
We have members of the Oracle Solaris DTrace engineering team coming to NYC for Voice of the Customer sessions.  They'll be available from Monday through Thursday the 16th-19th of September. 
We want to talk to system administrators/UNIX engineering folks, and management, who are currently using, or plan to use, DTrace.  

We are also looking to talk to Solaris centric development teams to explore how DTrace might benefit them, whether or not they currently use DTrace. This is an area of focus for us and we'd like to ensure we deliver the best development platform in the industry.  

Let me know if you'd like to participate and provide input on the future development of DTrace while understanding current development efforts.
