In my seven years at Sun and Oracle, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some incredible people on some truly amazing technology. But the time has come for me to move on, and today will be my last day at Oracle.
When I started in the Solaris kernel group in 2003, I had no idea that I was entering a truly unique environment – a culture of innovation and creativity that is difficult to find anywhere, let alone working on a system as old and complex as Solaris in a company as large as Sun. While there, I worked with others to reshape the operating system landscape through technologies like Zones, SMF, DTrace, and FMA, and fortunate to be part of the team that created ZFS, one of the most innovative filesystems ever. From there I became a member of the Fishworks team that created the Sun Storage 7000 series; working with such a close-knit talented team to create a groundbreaking integrated product like that was an experience that I will never forget.
I learned so much and grew in so many ways thanks to the people I had the chance to meet and work with over the past seven years. I would not be the person I am today without your help and guidance. While I am leaving Oracle, I will always be part of the community, and I look forward to our paths crossing in the future.
Despite not updating this blog as much as I’d like, I do hope to blog in the future at my new home: http://dtrace.org/blogs/eschrock.
Thanks for all the memories.
