Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 5/11 announced

Oracle announces Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 5/11, delivering unrivaled High Availability (HA) on the Oracle Solaris OS for the largest selection of enterprise applications and databases. Oracle Solaris Cluster unique HA solution for Oracle Solaris' virtual environments lowers the inherent risk of consolidated infrastructures by leveraging redundancy to protect from outages. Oracle Solaris Cluster Disaster Recovery (DR) option extends these benefits to multi-site, multi-cluster architectures to protect against planned and unplanned downtime, in physical and virtual environments.

With this latest release, Oracle Solaris Cluster further expands its support for Oracle hardware and software solution to include Oracle ASM Cluster File System (Oracle ACFS) configurations and Oracle' Sun ZFS storage appliance as NAS device.

New versions for nine different applications and databases have been qualified in Oracle Solaris Containers clusters including SAP (kernel 7.11) and Oracle RAC 11.2.0.2.

This new version also offers new DR options: Oracle Solaris ZFS storage pools replicated with storage-based solution supported in campus or geo clusters. Oracle single instance databases can be deployed with Oracle Dataguard for a fully integrated and managed option in a geo cluster configuration. It is also possible to use Oracle single instance databases in 3-site topologies, combining the benefits of metro clustering with geographic separation.

Diagnosability and ease of use have been improved with an extended cluster validation tool which allows to detect the most common installation and configuration errors and a new wizard which facilitates Oracle 11gR2 configurations in the Oracle Solaris Cluster environment.

This release also extends the support of Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions to any validated Oracle Solaris Cluster configurations based on Oracle Solaris Containers clusters.

Solaris Cluster supports Nehalem Constellation Blade

Solaris Cluster is now supported with the latest in Intel technology: the Sun Fire x4170 (1U) and x4270/x4275 (2U) leading-edge x64 servers.

Included in the latest platform portfolio is the Sun Blade x6270 Intel Xeon 5500 Nehalem Constellation blade. The new servers support a slew of features, such as double the compute threads (16 Hyper-Threads) and more memory than before at 144GB.
With the addition of PCIe Gen 2, larger storage capacities can be achieved with double the I/O. This is all wrapped around a package that includes SAS, SATA, and flash-based Solid State Disks (SSD).

Combine this with Solaris and Solaris Cluster, and you've got a scalable architecture for multi-threaded applications with mission-critical capability.

Solaris Cluster configurations on x4170, x4270, and x4275, along with the x6270, are now supported with the following Solaris Cluster releases and configurations: 

\* Solaris                    Solaris 10
\* Solaris Cluster         Solaris Cluster 3.2

\* 8-Node support
\* N\*N
\* 8-Node N+1
\* 8-Node Cluster Pairs \* 8 Node Pair + N
\* 8-Node Campus Cluster

Feel free to contact me or your sales representative for more detailed information!
