Solaris Management Console 2000
Solaris Management Console was a Java Swing based application. I was the lead designer on the console. Other colleagues at Sun worked on the tools. The console was a bit like a browser. The tools were like applets. You could create a hierarchical view of tools that came from multiple different servers.
I worked on GNOME, both from a UX perspective and a system integration one. It was a bit of a culture shock integrating fast moving open source software into a stable enterprise Unix platform, but we did it. I also presented of an overview Sun's Architecture review process Guadec 2002 in Seville.
High Availability Clustering
Sun Cluster. If a node fails in the cluster, application or zones (containers are called zones on Solaris) running on that node are restarted on other nodes in the cluster. There was also a disaster recovery option, where the application could be restarted on a different cluster in another location.
