i am sad to see the next good and innovative product dying at Sun during the last years (perhaps caused by the Oracle/Sun merge)....
So there is a remaining time of three years to get support for the product. I am not safisfied with the migration path for application provisioning delivered by Sun !
The OS / Firmware provisioning strategy is based on Ops Center. So there is a powerful tool to handle new OS versions or hardware platforms in the future.
But there is no concrete path to get SPS application provisioning to the next level.
I believe that no company that aligns thier longterm software provisioning strategy wants to migrate configuration plans and historical data stored in SPS to another tool wihthin the next three years to get a new "supported" platform for provisioning in the datacenter.
What are your ideas and thoughts to survive this dilemma ???
