Oracle Solaris was originally developed by Sun Microsystems. It is a Unix OS that replaced SunOS in 1993. When Oracle bought out Sun Microsystems in 2010, Solaris became known as Oracle Solaris.
The latest version is known as Oracle Solaris 11. It is being touted as the first cloud OS, retaining the security, scalability and reliability that Solaris is known for. But now, Solaris can help you have virtualization technologies out of the box, manage large amounts of data and a more secure cloud environment.
Another thing about Oracle Solaris is that it is engineered to work perfectly with Oracle Middleware, Database, and applications.
Features and Benefits of Oracle Solaris 11
So what are the advantages of using Oracle Solaris 11?
- It is the first operating system in the market to allow for smart and quick provisioning, set up and maintenance for storage, server and network virtualization.
- The virtualization solutions come built-in, which means you have the lowest latency and overhead solution in the market.
- Data management is scalable. Oracle Solaris 11 uses Oracle ZFS as its default file system. This means that you can get cutting edge storage features such as thin provisioning, encryption and deduplication.
- More secure. Oracle Solaris comes with integrated security. You get the latest security standards, integrated security for clients, applications, devices and users, as well as simplified management and administration.
