Yesterday and today, we’re hosting the US version of the Sun Directory Masters in Somerset NJ. Despite the weak economy and the swine flu, over 40 sales engineers, consultants, software architects met to discuss with the lead developers from the Directory engineering team, the coming features of Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7 and Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.0.
With an agenda very similar to the Grenoble event, yesterday we’ve covered the Directory landscape, the Directory Services products roadmap, performances and new deployment scenarios offered with the new products. Today, we’re discussing Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.0, its performances, tools to transition legacy directory services to new deployments, benchmarking tools… We also have presentations done by our partners like Bill Hathaway from Versatile or our own field engineers or architects like Brad Diggs, Michael Melore (trying to entertain the attendance at lunch break), Wajih Ahmed or Lee Trujillo (as pictured during his talk below).
It’s been a busy day in the Grenoble Engineer Center with Directory Masters gathering from all over Europe and even Japan for two days of training on the coming releases of Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition and Sun OpenDS Standard Edition.
For those two days, we’re hosting 30 sales, presales, architects, consultants from Sun and partner companies, immersed within the developers, architects, managers of the Directory Engineering team. This is a very good way for our guest to understand where the product is going and how to better sell it to customers, and for engineers to learn more about the real customers needs and problems to solve.
Today we’ve touched mostly the Directory landscape, our product roadmap, DSEE, deployments, performances, virtual directory features. Tomorrow will have more of an OpenDS flavor…
PS: To my Japanese friends, Moryia is not on the picture, but he’s in Grenoble
