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.

Oracle Solaris Near You

I really look forward to deliver the Oracle Solaris keynote in Los Angeles, CA, this week, as part of the event series "Datacenter Transformation: Engineered for Innovation".
In fact, there are many of those being held in North America in the upcoming weeks. Here's the overview.


One event series with much more focus on Oracle Solaris itself, also on a more technical level, is titled "Oracle Solaris 11 Technology Forum". You can look up the upcoming events in North America with this search string on the Oracle Events web page.
Keep looking for those, as many of the events will be added shortly.


In the EMEA region, Oracle runs very similar events than the Technology Forum very soon, except they call it "Tech Days". For German speakers, there are several ones upcoming in Germany and Switzerland. The appropriate information can be found here.


Again, keep checking the Oracle events page, searching for "Solaris" (or any other product, product family, etc. that interests you), and chose your region, country, language, etc. Other great examples of these (related) event series are the "Extreme Performance Tour" going on globally right now, as well as the "Oracle Cloud Conference".


Oracle Field Marketing does a great job in organizing many many of those on an ongoing basis, somewhere
NEAR YOU
