14 Nov 2013 Optimizing OS performance [33633]
With Ops Center's OS Analytics tools

Owen Allen writes, "With the right information, there's a lot that you can do to improve the performance of an operating system. However, it can be time-consuming to gather that information in a large environment with hundreds or thousands of operating systems, Oracle Solaris Zones, or Oracle VM Servers.

Ops Center's OS Analytics tools can help you gather the information that you need to tune your operating systems. For operating systems managed by Ops Center, you can view OS performance info like CPU and memory utilization, process details, and virtualization capacity. For Oracle Solaris systems, you can also view the status and details of SMF services.

We put together a "how-to" that walks you through the process of viewing all of this information..."

23 Oct 2013 How to Set Up a Hadoop Cluster Using Oracle Solaris [33364]
Hands-On Labs of the System Admin and Developer Community of OTN by Orgad Kimchi

Orgad Kimchi presents a hands-on lab presents exercises that demonstrate how to set up an Apache Hadoop cluster using Oracle Solaris 11 technologies such as Oracle Solaris Zones, ZFS, and network virtualization. Key topics include the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and the Hadoop MapReduce programming model:

Lab Introduction

We will also cover the Hadoop installation process and the cluster building blocks: NameNode, a secondary NameNode, and DataNodes. In addition, you will see how you can combine the Oracle Solaris 11 technologies for better scalability and data security, and you will learn how to load data into the Hadoop cluster and run a MapReduce job.

Prerequisites

This hands-on lab is appropriate for system administrators who will be setting up or maintaining a Hadoop cluster in production or development environments. Basic Linux or Oracle Solaris system administration experience is a prerequisite. Prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required.

System Requirements

This hands-on lab is run on Oracle Solaris 11 in Oracle VM VirtualBox. The lab is self-contained. All you need is in the Oracle VM VirtualBox instance.

23 Oct 2013 Oracle Licenses VMware vSphere Storage APIs for Oracle Storage [33368]
Agreement Enables Customers to Access and Manage Oracle Storage from VMware Environments

Oracle has licensed VMware vSphere Storage APIs to enable customers to more easily manage Oracle storage from VMware environments. VMware users and service providers will be able to more easily take advantage of the higher levels of performance and efficiency available with Oracle's ZFS Storage Appliance and Pillar Axiom storage systems. Customers can also streamline their data centers by consolidating storage onto fewer, higher performance storage systems to support an ever growing number of virtualized servers.

Oracle announced it has signed an agreement with VMware enabling support of VMware vSphere Storage APIs on Oracle storage products, including Oracle's ZFS Storage Appliances and Pillar Axiom storage systems.

The license enables development across VMware infrastructure, including the VMware vSphere API for Array Integration (VAAI), VMware vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA), VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM), and VMware vSphere.

01 Oct 2013 Impressions from Oracle Open World 2013 [33010]
By Markus Flierl

"4 days of Oracle Open World are over now..., I've had a super-busy week with over 2 dozen customer meetings and 1/2 dozen analyst meetings, not to mention partners and internal colleagues. Oracle Open World is by far my most productive week of the year and I thrive on that! The best summary of the last week is what I heard from one of the analysts from a major analyst firm: 'We are seeing the Renaissance of SPARC and Solaris'.

It all started on Sunday with a customer advisory board in the San Francisco office. Some of my technical leads and I spent 1/2 day with key customers reviewing our key investments and getting their feedback on those. One of the customers gave a talk on their self-provisioning IaaS and PaaS cloud taking advantage of the latest S11 features. They are using a combination of Solaris zones as well as OVM SPARC in order to achieve super-high compression rates and drive the cost/VM well below what they can get with RHEL and VMWare on x86 hardware. Not to mention all of the other benefits of Solaris like higher up-time, security, super-efficient patching etc..."
