Solaris 8 Migration Assistant 1.0 (Project Etude) Ships!

I’m very happy to announce that the Solaris 8 Migration Assistant 1.0 (also known as Project Etude) has shipped!  The product is now officially available from Sun.  Some key links:

In a nutshell, the product provides a migration solution from Solaris 8 to Solaris 10 by creating a bridge between the two operating systems.  You can perform P2V (physical-to-virtual) conversions of existing Solaris 8 systems, and drop those into Solaris 8 containers running on your Solaris 10 host.

Above all, I want to take another chance to thank the many people who worked extremely hard for the past eight months to make this project a reality.  It was sprint from start to finish, which is certainly tough on everyone involved.  But I was amazed and pleased that almost universally, people helped us out with dedication and a good sense of humor.  Thank you very much.
