Kickoff March with Solaris Engineers in NY
By unixman on Feb 15, 2012
A group of Solaris Product Managers and Solaris engineers is coming to New York city the week of March 5th thru March 9th.To incorporate customer feedback into our on-going work on Oracle Solaris, we are conducting a series of in-person customer interviews to solicit requirements in the area of Oracle Solaris Zones and Single System Management of Oracle Solaris. We would like to include key New York/New Jersey-based customer contacts in this discussion. (Single System Management is a reference to enabling Solaris to be manageable with published interfaces, as a single system, which of course multiplies in relevance as the quantity of deployed systems grows)
We are looking to understand how you, our customers, use virtualization and specifically Oracle Solaris Zones in your environment, understand what areas work well and what areas you would like to see improved or added. In addition we're looking at how to better enable enterprise management software to interact with Oracle Solaris as well as to enable system administrators to make the best use of your deployed systems.
We expect that our customers will benefit with the ability to influence future Oracle Solaris management software, as well as the Oracle Solaris Zones virtualization technologies, which we hope will provide value in the future. The feedback will also be shared with other relevant engineering teams within Oracle.
We are seeking to talk with system managers and administrators. We would like to propose an in person interview of approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. If interested, please contact your Oracle Hardware account representative with a few time slots that work for you and copy me [ isaac dot rozenfeld at oracle dot com ], so that I can try and book on the schedule.
The suggested agenda is as follows:
- Oracle Solaris and your environment
- Oracle Solaris System Management direction
- Oracle Solaris Zones direction
The following out-of-town personnel are planning to be available to meet in-person:
Eric Saxe - Engineering Manager, Single Systems Management
Stephen Talley - Engineer, Single Systems Management
Duncan Hardie - Solaris Product Manager, Zones
Anup Sekhar - Engineering Manager, Zones
Steve Lawrence - Engineer, Zones
Since I am based locally in New York, I may join too.
Update - there will be an evening session where everyone's invited to attend, on Tuesday March 6th at 6pm.
