Solaris Challenge Competiton Update

I posted a while back about our
Solaris 10 Challenge Competition
. Simply put: do something cool with Zones or DTrace, and compete to win a HDTV, ACER Ferrari laptop or
Apple iPod. I got an update from the challenge-master today about the popularity
of the contest. I had expected maybe a dozen entries in each of the four categories. Well, no. Here
are the number of entrants as of today:

  • DTrace Creative Challenge: 44 entries
  • DTrace Performance Challenge: 117 entries
  • Solaris Containers Creative Challenge: 64 entries
  • Solaris Containers Utilization Challenge: 42 entries

For a grand total of 267 contest entries from 39 countries to date! This rocks. And the contest doesn’t close until
December 24, so there’s still time to enter!
