Oracle Virtual Sysadmin Day

In case you're not already aware Oracle is hosting it's First Virtual Sysadmin Day on 1/15/13.  It's a free event (registration is required).  There are 3 separate tracks:
  • Linux
  • Solaris
  • OVM
Here are some of the things that are going to be covered:
  • Create and manage ZFS pools and filesystems, safely update and restore your system using Boot Environments
  • Create and manage a virtualized Oracle Solaris environment using Oracle Solaris Zones and Network Virtualization
  • Install Oracle Linux using RPM and yum repositories; create storage volumes, prepare block devices, work with filesystems
  • Create and mount Btrfs in Oracle Linux, work with block devices and snapshots
  • Plan and deploy a virtualized infrastructure environment with Oracle VM
  • Virtualize and deploy enterprise applications in minutes using Oracle VM Templates
You'll be running the labs on your own machine using Virtualbox, so there is a little bit of pre-work to get prepared.  Overall it seems like a very cool idea, and I'm interested to see how it works.
Here is a link to a Wiki with all the details:
