During its Openworld event, Oracle announced the release of Oracle Solaris 11.1 to deliver enhancements in features and performance.
Some of the outstanding enhancements of this new Solaris version are its capabilities for building large-scale infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) clouds for both SPARC and x86 processor-based servers, as well as extreme availability for mission critical applications.
John Fowler, executive vice president of Systems, Oracle, made the following remarks:
The Oracle Solaris engineering team has worked closely with the Oracle Database engineering team to deliver unique value that customers can only get from an Oracle solution. Oracle Solaris 11, Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers and our engineered systems—Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4—offer customers the best solutions for their mission critical cloud infrastructure.
An expected trend within new releases of Oracle Solaris systems is the enhancement of cloud-ready capabilities as organizations increasingly deploy cloud solutions in a wide variety of configurations.
