Oracle’s Solaris 11 Roadmap

Oracle used its OpenWorld 2010 conference in San Francisco assure its base of Solaris customers that the operating system is not going anywhere. In a presentation on Sept. 20, John Fowler, executive vice president of systems at Oracle shared a roadmap for Oracle Solaris 11.

Fowler said Oracle is increasing its investment in the Oracle Solaris operating system. The company 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.

Oracle Solaris 11 is designed to help reduce maintenance windows by eliminating the need for up to 50 percent of system restarts. It also will recover systems in tens of seconds rather than tens of minutes with Fast Reboot. Users will 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. The platform 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.
