Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 5/11 announced
By mkb on Jul 13, 2011
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 18.104.22.168.
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.
