I’ll be delivering two presentations at
Community One
this year. My slides are posted on the
in case you want to download them. I like to use my slides
as an outline instead of just reading them, so hopefully people
who are attending will
actually get some value from hearing me speak. 🙂
Don’t forget that the Tuesday Deep Dive is free if you
register with the OSDDT code.
There a several ways to get into the deep dives if you
are planning on attending. All of these are on the

The Deploying OpenSolaris Deep Dive on Tuesday at
Community One
is free if you register using the promotional code OSDDT. The session doesn’t start until
11:00 am so that people can still attend the JaveOne key note.

Chris Armes will start with an overview
of deploying OpenSolaris in the data center. After lunch
Ben Rockwood
will be delivering a two hour presentation on ZFS. This promises to be the highlight
of the session.
Nick, one of my co-authors on the
OpenSolaris Bible,
will then talk about high availability and I’ll wrap up with a talk on how to use zones
for consolidation.

Jordan just posted a nice
about the work we’ve been doing for
Solaris 10 branded zones
running on
His post also has a link to a Flash demo we put together
showing the process of migrating a standalone Solaris 10 system into a zone
on OpenSolaris. Both of us will be at
Community One West
and we’ll be running the branded zone in the virtualization pod. If you’re there and interested, stop
by to check it out. I’ll also be talking about this project as part of my presentations.

I’ll be delivering two presentations at
Community One West
at the beginning of June. The first presentation is on Monday June 1st and I’ll be covering
“Built-in Virtualization for the OpenSolaris Operating System”. It will be an overview
of some basic virtualization concepts and the various solutions available in
OpenSolaris. I’ll also be discussing the trade-offs of one vs. the other. The second
presentation is on Tuesday as part of the deep dives. I’ll be discussing application consolidation
using zones. I’ll also be hanging around the virtualization demo pod when I’m not presenting.

In addition, I think there is going to be a book signing for the
OpenSolaris Bible.
My co-authors
Nick and
Dave are also going to be attending.
This will be the first (and only?) time the three of us have actually been together
at the same time.

At least some of the other zones engineers (
Steve and
should be there too, so if you’re attending, stop by the virtualization pod and say hi.

I happened to be looking at google book search today and I
thought I’d see if the book I co-authored, the
OpenSolaris Bible
was there. It is and you can see it
Although the table of contents and some sample chapters are available elsewhere, this provides
a nice way to browse more material in the book. I think google will let you see up to 20% of the book.

I also noticed the other new OpenSolaris book,
Pro OpenSolaris is there, as is the venerable
Solaris Internals.
