Migrate From Oracle Solaris 11 To Oracle Database 11gR2
By Markus Weber on Aug 01, 2012
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.
