Vol 103 Issue 3: September 18th to 24th, 2006

Following up on last week's announcements, this issue features more details on the new storage products: Sun StorageTek Crypto Key Management Station that encrypts data while it is being recorded (see article [17015]), the Sun StorageTek Virtual Tape Library [17016], and the advantages of the Sun StorageTek T10000 Tape Drive [17017]. These and other storage products will be discussed further at the upcoming Forum 2006 storage event in Las Vegas [17032].

New online resources keep popping up like prairie dogs - always ready: the Solaris ZFS online learning center boasts multimedia how-to guides [16999], and the Sun Virtualization Learning Center [16998] offers more on Solaris Containers and the benefits of virtualization.

Jonathan Schwartz has been making the rounds to interviewers. We link you to two recent interviews from eWeek and BusinessWeek [17018] where Schwartz talked about Sun's growth and upcoming products like the Niagara 2.

A new promotion is encouraging you to make a video telling Sun how you would use the Sun Fire X4500 "Thumper" server [17025]. There will monthly prizes until the contest ends in December. Maybe you can show off that server at the company holiday party.
