Working Across Boundaries: Solaris Cluster 3/2 1/09!
By mkb on Jan 29, 2009
I am sure you have seen the recent blog post and the announcement of Solaris Cluster 3.2 1/09. This release has a cool set of features, which includes providing high availability and disaster recovery in virtualized environment. It is also exciting to see distributed applications like Oracle RAC run in separate virtual clusters! Some of the features integrated into this release were developed in the open HA Cluster community. That is another first for us!
I am sure the engineers in the team will be writing blog journals in the coming weeks, detailing the features that have been developed. Stay tuned for more big things from this very energetic and enthusiastic team!
It is very interesting to see the product getting rave reviews from you, our customers. We value your feedback and take extra steps to make the product even better. We appreciate the acknowledgement! Here is one customer success story from EMBARQ that will catch your attention:
"Solaris Cluster provides a superior method of high availability. Our overall availability is 99.999%. No other solution has been able to ensure us with such tremendous uptime" — Kevin McBride, Network Systems Administrator III at EMBARQ
That is one big compliment! Thank you for your continued support and feedback!
A distributed team has made this release possible. Some of the features are large and needed coordinated effort across various boundaries (teams, organizations, continents)! A BIG thanks to the entire Cluster Team for their hard work, to get yet another quality product released. It is a great team!
