Solaris Day - Part XIII - December 2010


This past week we had yet another installment of Solaris Days - a 2-day tour of New York City and Bridgewater, New Jersey specifically focusing on Solaris-related activities and technologies that our customers are becoming increasingly aware of, and consuming.  Solaris is an important asset for Oracle; innovations in Solaris are ongoing, particularly with a focus on making it the OS of choice for increased internal service and application development deployments, as well as a stronger choice in Oracle's strong software portfolio.



As part of demonstrating Oracle's commitment to the Solaris ecosystem in the post-acquisition era, Solaris 11 Express was recently released and we had number of senior Solaris seasoned architects & developers from across the US come meet with customers, partners and community as a whole, to articulate the innovations in Solaris technologies and appropriate implications to our customers' businesses.



The over-encompassing, albeit Solaris-focused, presentation agenda looked like below (with the order slightly being different for the 2nd day in NJ, due to customer meetings that had been setup in advance) - the slides are available below for your consumption.  If you are interested in hearing about these events in the future, please subscribe to our NYC OpenSolaris user group  mailing list.
