OpenSolaris Gains Traction

Sun this week released new customer adoption numbers that show a significant up tick in customer adoption rates for the various technologies with the OpenSolaris communities. From telecommunications, financial services and healthcare to high-performance computing and the Web tier, adoption of OpenSolaris technologies spans a wide range of vertical markets.
“The innovative features of OpenSolaris — such as ZFS, DTrace and its unique distribution model — along with the speed of deployment and execution it allows, have struck a cord with customers,” said Tim Cramer, senior director of OpenSolaris engineering, Sun Microsystems Inc. “The increased cost savings, flexibility and scale our customers are seeing through the use of OpenSolaris and its communities validates Sun’s decades-long commitment to the open source model. We offer customers lower total cost of ownership and increased return on investment through the combination of OpenSolaris and Sun’s industry leading hardware, software infrastructure and services.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.

    With respect, that’s not a story link – it’s a press release link. It’d be nice to see third party news/blogs about adoption rather than Sun spin.
