Migrate From Oracle Solaris 11 To Oracle Database 11gR2


Wait. What ?
Of course, even if you know only very little about IT, that just doesn't make sense, does it ?
How can you migrate from an operating system to a database ?
Well, technically, you can't.
But migrating your focus from one product to another at your company, that you can.


And that's what I did, as of today.


I joined the Database Product Marketing team at Oracle. Its core product.
That's after a bit more than 4 fantastic years focusing on Solaris, first as Technical Marketing Manager (at Sun), then as Product Marketing Manager (at Oracle).
The Oracle Solaris team achieved a lot recently, as I wrote about in my 2011 review.
I'm pretty sure Oracle Solaris will stay the #1 Enterprise OS for still a long time to come !


But, from now on, I plan to have interesting things to write about the most successful database on the planet
It's almost back to the roots, in a way. In my first job out of college, I actually was a certified Oracle DBA.

Jonathan Schwartz or Scott McNealy ?

As in many other companies (I guess), some employees at Sun came into work today dressed up for Halloween.

I just bumped into Scott McNealy in the cafeteria.

He was dressed up as Jonathan Schwartz (i.e. wearing a ponytail wig).

I couldn't stop laughing.

I think it's essential to always have fun, even in not so good days.

Wrong Marketing

Being new to a marketing organization (technical, in this case), one might get overwhelmed with the different disciplines that exist within marketing - worse than at the Olympics actually.

There is product marketing, outbound marketing, inbound marketing, field marketing, technical marketing, events marketing, brand marketing, launch marketing, ... which one did I forget ?

Anyway, have a look at the below video, from my beautiful home state of Bavaria, with lessons to learn on how not to do things ;)

Yet Another Blogger

Having been at Sun for several years, I recently joined the Solaris Technical Marketing Team at Sun. It's an exciting place to work, as it is very cool to work with the well-respected and proven Solaris Operating System, but also with some other leading-edge technology such as Sun xVM VirtualBox, OpenSolaris, the OpenSolaris Community, and many more technologies and aspect of the IT world.

I know that there are many other geeks out there.
However, there are also many people that might be thankful for some simpler, yet detailed explanations of certain aspects of those technologies.

I'll try to provide that.
