Downloadable Database in a Solaris Zone

To simplify the process of creating Oracle databases, Oracle has released two Solaris Zones with Oracle 11gR2 pre-installed. You can simply download the appropriate template and "attach" it to your x86 or SPARC system running Solaris 10 (update 10/09 or newer).

Links to the downloads are at oracle.com.

Of course, you must have a valid license to run 11gR2 on that computer.

Oracle DB 11gR2 Certified for Solaris Containers

Just a short entry today: last week Oracle completed certification of Oracle RAC 11gR2 (with Clusterware) on Oracle Solaris 10 Containers ("Zones").

For details, see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/virtualizationmatrix-172995.html .

A paper "Best Practices for Deploying Oracle RAC Inside Oracle Solaris Containers" is also available, but is not specific to 11gR2.

This extends the previous certifications of Oracle RAC (9iR2, 10gR2, 11gR1) on Solaris Containers.
