The illumos project was initiated in 2010 as a open, community-driven continuation of the OpenSolaris OS/Net codebase. Illumos now provides the base for various open and commercial distributions powering computers, servers or even entire clouds.

illumos provides features like production-safe dynamic tracing with DTrace, the ZFS filesystem, as well as complete OS level and full virtualization (Zones, KVM) + many other interesting capabilities.

This talk wants to give an introduction and a "why you should care" about the illumos project and its distributions like OpenIndiana, SmartOS and illumian.

(I’ll look around whether higher-profile people from the illumos community could join, but lots of them are US based though)


Student and system administrator. Works with Linux and other UNIX-like systems in education area, came across OpenSolaris shortly before it got axed by Oracle. He learned to like it and nowadays, considers himself somewhat of a community member who thinks there is a need to tout more about illumos.
