Sun's Thumper will turn heads

Sun’s new drool-worthy X4500 server packs up to 24TB (yeah, that’s a T) of storage in a 4U box. This type of architecture screams for ZFS filesystems. This sentiment is shared in a blog post by Johnathan Schwartz where he links to my ZFS article at Tech-Recipes. His post also has a great picture of the beast and links to video recaps of the product launch.

Free Solaris security cert exam beta registration

For you Sun jocks out there, there is an open, free registration for the Sun Certified Security Administrator for Solaris 10 certification beta exam. If you’ve never taken a beta exam, be prepared: they are long. I’m guessing you get to answer every question they have, which makes sense. If you pass (and it’ll be a while before you find out, not instantly as with other exams), you’ll be officially certified, so it is a great opportunity. For details, see Sun’s official page.
