Solaris Day - Part XIII - December 2010
By unixman on Dec 05, 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.8:30 Registration & Breakfast

Hats off to all engineers/speakers who traveled to make this content-rich event possible, as well as to the entire Sun/Oracle marketing folks who provided excellent logistics support. Most of all - thank YOU, our customers and attendees, for asking the questions, interacting and providing excellent candid feedback regarding areas
where to take Solaris to keep meeting your growing needs! And, congratulations to the raffle/book winners!
'till next time!
