Event Details

THIS MONTH'S TOPIC: OpenSolaris Installfest

This month's event is an OpenSolaris InstallFest!

Bring your laptop and install OpenSolaris in a Virtual Box (or VMware if you supply it) virtual machine. Or just boot the temporary no-install-necessary OpenSolaris LiveCD. This will be the first of two sessions, the next session being a hands-on exploration of OpenSolaris, performing some labs at the August meeting.

During this month's meeting, we'll also demonstrate some of the easy-to-use new features of OpenSolaris that Jeff Savit presented at the last meeting. Time permitting, you may be able to do a couple of short labs, or you can do them at the August meeting. We'll supply the DVDs with Virtual Box and OpenSolaris -- so just bring yourself and your laptop.

Why install and learn OpenSolaris? Here are a few reasons:

  • because you are a person who appreciates the latest, most advanced technology available in an OS. Technology like DTrace, ZFS, Zones, Crossbow Virtualized Networking, IPS, FMA and SMF.
  • because OpenSolaris is a preview of what Solaris "next" (after Solaris 10) will look like.
  • because you can run it in production today with Sun Support for 5 years, allowing you to benefit from the latest Solaris features like Crossbow and TimeSlider snapshot management.
  • because it's free and easy to install and manage!

This month's (July 21) meeting agenda:

  • What's new at Sun (10-15 min)
  • OpenSolaris InstallFest and OpenSolaris Features demo (60-90 min)

Next month's (August 18) meeting agenda:

  • What's new at Sun (10-15 min)
  • Short OpenSolaris Intro Labs to be done on your laptop and demo'ed on the screen: DTrace / DTrace Chime; ZFS; IPS / IPS PackageManager; Timeslider; Desktop; Sun Studio
