Privileged Access

Orange cross in a circleI’m two weeks in as an employee at Joyent. Last night was the first time I really logged in to SmartOS, and the first time I’ve had privileged access on Solaris (derivative) since 2004 at IBM.

It took my back. I’ve used plenty of Windows and Linux VMs, but it only struck me now getting my hands again on “real Unix” what I’ve been taking for granted. The cloud puts incredibly sophisticated technology in our hands. It allows us to make mistakes and benefit from them at an incredible pace.
