illumos at SCALE

So, I've spent the past day or so here at the Hilton LAX with Albert, Roland, and Delya manning the illumos booth at SCALE. We're at booth #72. We've been handing out disks with OpenIndiana, Nexenta Core Platform (4.0 alpha release based on illumos), and NexentaStor 3.1 (alpha release) as well as the first ever illumos T-shirts for those folks who install one of these on their system (either physical or virtual.) I'll have photos to post soon -- sorry they're not ready yet.

The show has been amazing, and we've made a lot of new connections, both with other members of the open source community, and with new potential users and contributors as well as other potential collaborators.

If you're around tomorrow, please drop by and say hello!

(Oh yeah, and come watch Richard Elling and I mix it up with the BTRFS guys at the open source filesystems panel tomorrow!)

And if you're looking for an open source job, drop by and chat. We are hiring in a number of areas, and I'd love to have a chance to chat with candidates.

See you tomorrow!

Any chance for a link to the alphas of both NexentaStor 3.1 and NexentaCore 4.0?

The NCP 4 alpha is *really* raw, and we will probably not be putting it up on our website until we get a bit further along. The disks we handed out were a teaser preview for the show.

The NCP 3.1 beta will be coming soon.
