I have been working for Sun for more than 18 Months now, during which I have been blogging at http://blogs.sun.com/krabhishek Now I thought its time to get my personal blog running.
So from here on.. I would be blogging here.. Thanks to my favorite CMS Drupal!
On 9th of July, 450 members of GLOSS got to experience one (or I should say two) of the most amazing things of our ages! It was the OpenSolaris in Second Life!
GLOSS has its newsletter out!!!!
The past academic year was very eventful at GLOSS and we decided to put the major events in form of a newsletter. So here we are, with the first issue of OpenView ! Get your copy here!
After almost a month long vacation, when college reopened, we at GLOSS could not wait to do something exciting!! And what could be more exciting than Open High Availability Clusters (OHAC). I attended a talk on OHAC by Tirthankar during my recent visit of Sun India Engineering Center at Bangalore. I was completely taken by the technology and I knew I am going to do something with it, the moment I get a chance. Anyways... the day I landed in college, I sat down to set up a one node cluster on my laptop!
There can be many a times when you cannot afford to spend those valuable $$$ to prove your concept or express yourself or give you the start you are looking for Then where do you go?? Now that open source has become such a big thing, that I don't think I need to explicitly answer this question!! But then, identifying what application to use and where can get a bit daunting (As daunting as atleast 3 rounds of googling )!! Anyways, here I would like to recommend 5 open source application which can get you rolling with your concept....
Everyone was celebrating the release of OpenSolaris on May 5th, and at GLOSS, we have been busy planning the same for quite some time.. It was no doubt one of the most awaited event since Project Indiana was declared. So.. as I told everyone before.. we celebrated May 5th as Opensolaris Birthday... There was cake.. there was decorations.. there were people with celebration mood and there was the latest Technology!!!
Opensolaris is a powerful Operating System and Intel Xeon is no doubt one of the most powerful x86 server platform! Now, in the poweful community of Opensolaris there are some serious work going on towards optimizing this powerful Operating System on powerful Xeon so that we can cut down on Power Consumption.. If too much of "Power" has left you confused then go ahead and watch this video in which (Intel) Dave talks about the on-going efforts of optimizing Opensolaris on Xeon.
OpenSolaris is creating lots of buzz everywhere! With so many people egarly waiting to know whats new with OpenSolaris, a small talk from the "inside men" was very much needed! Thanks to Terri Wischmann, who spoke to Dr. Stephen Hahn and Tim Cramer about whats happening at the OpenSolaris camp and got us an exciting inside scoop on it.
