Oracle Solaris, OEL, and Oracle VM Available on All Certified non-Sun Hardware



















(updated with new headline to include all Solaris-certified hardware vendors.)

This has been a big question for fans of Solaris on non-Sun hardware, but it's finally been answered.

Oracle Solaris can be certified and resold by Dell, IBM, HP, Fujitsu, and any Solaris-Certified hardware vendor on their own hardware.

So can Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle VM.

Oracle Premier support is available for Oracle Solaris, Oracle Enterprise Linux, and Oracle VM.

A few quick resources:

System Admin and Developer Community of OTN is Live

Four OTN Communities

As Justin just said in the OTN Blog we are now all One:

There's still a lot of cleaning up to do, but with rare exceptions, all relevant content from BigAdmin, SDN, and OpenSolaris.com is now in the Systems Community of OTN.

In future blogs I'll provide tips and ticks for navigating, finding and, if you're so inclined, submitting content.  That's content for developers and administrators of Solaris, Linux, Servers, Storage, and related software, hardware, and tools. I'll also point out the differences in mechanics between the Systems Community of OTN and the Sun legacy sites.

Don Kretch on Solaris Studio at OTN LiveCast

Afraid your application will prove too much for its server? 

Watch Don Kretch, senior director of software development for Oracle Solaris Studio, tell Justin how Studio has the highest-performing C, C++, and Fortran compilers.  Not to mention the coolest tools for making your application take advantage of the multi-core capabilities in Oracle Sun servers (SPARC and x86) - practically while you take a coffee break.  He may even demo the latest release

Have your questions ready....

June 13th at 10:00 am PT right here:  http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/techcastlive/index.html

(In case you're not familiar with OTN TechCasts, they're live.  If  you  miss the live broadcast, you can watch the replay a few weeks later.  Kinda like Netflix.)

How to Stay Informed During BigAdmin/SDN Content Migration

Content from BigAdmin, OpenSolaris.com, SDN/Solaris, and SDN/Studio is being migrated to the Oracle Technology Network.  It will appear, along with content about Oracle Sun servers and storage systems (eventually), in the "Systems Admin and Developer Community" of the Oracle Technology Network. 

I will distribute the URL to that community as soon as migration is complete.

In the meantime, keep an eye on (or subscribe) to these channels to stay informed:
