Imagine … trying to get something as simple as a quote for Lustre support …

… and not being able to.

Seems most of the folks at Sun/Oracle haven’t heard of Lustre. I had to explain it to them on several calls yesterday. They didn’t understand why someone would want to pay for support of a GPL licensed system …

er …

ah …

mebbe we found some real nice gotchas, and want to get Sun to work on them, and give us a hand in ameliorating them?

I know … too early into the acquisition to really know, but some of the responses have been interesting thus far.

If you know how to get a Lustre support contract out of Sun/Oracle, please, by all means, send me your telephone number. I’d like to shorten the time it takes to walk these trees until we accidentally find the right people.

(I shouldn’t complain, as I am so far behind on my own work in generating quotes … the irony is not lost on me … in our part it is due to a very healthy demand, and an ever expanding pipeline)
