I am a member of the Storage Performance Council and some of my coworkers are members of SNIA and various SNIA subcommittees.
We are very interested in working with Oracle to get a contact inside Oracle now that Henk has retired and the Broomfield group has been disbanded. SPC is interested in taking on the ongoing support/moderation of vdbench if Oracle would be willing to allow this, and/or make the product truly Open Source.
I am working on some possible enhancements to vdbench and would truly love to be able to release them to the world.
