About

Hello!

I’m Dale Ghent, a Systems Engineer living in the Washington, DC area. I tend to focus on the illumos-based operating systems OmniOS and SmartOS on a wide variety of x86 hardware. My experience with these, Solaris and other UNIX-like operating systems such as the BSD family and various Linux distributions stretches back to 1994. I am currently one of the primary maintainers of OmniOS at OmniTI.

When not at my day job, I enjoy working towards my private pilots’ license, amateur astronomy, DJing, traveling, and photography (I’m a Canon guy.)

This site is hosted on my own co-located server which currently runs my own OS, OmniOS.
