Oracle ZFS Storage: Powered by Oracle Solaris

Did you know that the first systems to ship with Solaris 11 were Sun's "Unified Storage Systems" -- back in 2008?  Yep, that's three years before its official general release, to get to the capabilities and scalability the Solaris 11 kernel had built in as soon as possible.

This is the design decision that's at the heart of the current generation of these products, the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance. Bob Handlin has put together three short videos that highlight the capabilities of this product line, and how it's ideal for virtualization / cloud environments.

Videos: Oracle Solaris 11.2 and More

If you're looking for more information about Oracle Solaris 11.2, and video happens to be your favorite medium, then you're in luck.  The Oracle Solaris YouTube channel is now stocked with links to plenty of videos, both short and long, covering the key new features that have been introduced this week.  And if you're in the mood for whimsy, you can join Sofia in her quest to help her daddy figure out this whole "cloud" thing.

Now, where did that button go...?

Some New Old Solaris Videos, Plus Some Old New Ones

A few unfortunate events took place that hammered the contents of this blog, which we're in the process of fixing.

(In case you care about the minutiae: Many of the videos were stored on a non-Sun/Oracle repository, which recently decided it didn't want to be in that business any more; a lot of the posts used internal embedding codes to link to some other video sites, and those codes were no longer working; and, just to make things more fun, the email address that the notifications for these problems went to was also incorrect.  Argh.)

There were a lot of videos here, so this isn't a quick thing, but you'll see more and more of the blog posts get repopulated over time.  (Here's a list of what's been restored so far.)

You can help us out: If you see a post that looks interesting, but the video isn't showing up, leave a comment on that post and we'll move it up the priority list.

So that takes us up to late 2010.  What about any more recent videos?  Well, it turns out we also have a YouTube channel, which you are invited to subscribe to.  That's where a lot of the videos from the above-mentioned defunct repository are now hosted, plus some other new content, which we'll be adding more to.

You can help us out some more: What new Oracle Solaris videos would you like to see?  There's a lot that's been going on recently, there are some new announcements we've made, and we just plain may have missed some topics. Tell us what you want to see more about, and we'll see if we can get something going.  One easy way to do that is to leave a comment on this post.

And if that's not enough, why not check out the OTN Garage YouTube channel?

Thanks for tuning in!
