Oracle outlines next major release of Oracle Solaris
Posted on 21-Sep-2010 08:05. | Tags Filed under: News.



Oracle is increasing its investment in the Oracle Solaris operating system and is preparing for the planned availability of Oracle Solaris 11 in 2011 by releasing Solaris 11 Express, to provide customers with access to the latest Solaris 11 technology.

The company says Oracle Solaris 11 is scheduled to contain more than 2,700 projects with more than 400 inventions, and will be the result of more than 20 million person hours of development and over 60 million hours of testing.

Oracle Solaris 11 is expected to increase application throughput, improve platform performance, and maximize overall platform reliability and security through joint engineering and integration testing with the Oracle software stack.

Through the same engineering disciplines that made Oracle Solaris so reliable, Oracle Solaris 11 is expected to reduce planned downtime in impactful ways by being faster and easier to deploy, update and manage:

- Virtually eliminate patching and update errors with new dependency-aware packaging tools that are aligned across the entire Oracle hardware and software stack to reduce maintenance overhead.

- Easily build a custom stack of Oracle Solaris and Oracle Software in a physical or virtual image to enforce enterprise quality and policy standards that speed deployment and ease maintenance.

- Reduce maintenance windows by eliminating the need for up to 50 percent of system restarts.

- Recover systems in tens of seconds versus tens of minutes with Fast Reboot.

- Receive proactive and preemptive support that reduces service outages from known issues via My Oracle Support telemetry integration with the Oracle Solaris in depth fault management architecture.

Oracle Solaris 11 is being engineered with many new capabilities that are designed to make it ideal for building, deploying and maintaining Cloud systems. Oracle Solaris 11 will be optimized for the scale and performance requirements of immediate and future Cloud-based deployments, allowing customers to reduce costs and increase security by creating self-contained, multi-tier application environments in single instance systems linked by virtual networking.

The platform will also increase Oracle Fusion Middleware 11 g and Java-based application performance through jointly engineered improvements, such as memory management and I/O enhancements.

The first Oracle Solaris 11 Express release, expected by the end of calendar year 2010, will provide customers with timely access to the latest Oracle Solaris 11 Express features with an optional Oracle support agreement. This release is expected to be the path forward for developers, end-users and partners using previous generations of earlier Solaris and OpenSolaris releases.

Solaris 11 will be powering the newly announced Oracle Exadata X2-2 and X2-8 Database Machines, as well as the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud machine. Customers invested in Oracle Solaris will find these new offerings very attractive to standardize their operating system and simplify their IT operations.
