Unsung features of the Solaris Cluster 3.2 1/09 (U2) release

By now I am sure you have seen that Solaris Cluster 3.2 1/09 got released yesterday. The set of new features is impressive, where the Solaris Containers Cluster for Oracle RAC clearly stands out. Read the Release Notes and the new set of product documentation for more details.

But I also want to mention the additional agent qualifications part of this new update release:

  • Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) version 9.4, 10, 11 and 11.5 on Solaris 10 (SPARC and x64) - this is a new agent which got developed within a project of the HA Clusters Community Group for Open HA Cluster
  • PostgreSQL agent support for PostgreSQL WAL shipping - again developed within the corresponding project for Open HA Cluster
  • SAP version 7.1
  • MaxDB version 7.7
  • WebLogic Server version 9.2, 10.0 and 10.2 in Solaris Container
  • SwiftAlliance Access version 6.2
  • SwiftAlliance Gateway version 6.1
  • Sun Java System Message Queue version 4.1 and 4.2
  • Sun Java System Application Server version 9.1UR2, Glassfish V2 UR2
  • Sun Java System Web Server version 7.0u4
  • MySQL version 5.1 - have also a look at the corresponding project page for Open HA Cluster
  • Apache Proxy Server version 2.2.5 and versions bundled with Solaris 10 10/08 and 5/08
  • Apache Web Server version 2.2.5 and versions bundled with Solaris 10 10/08 and 5/08
  • Agfa IMPAX version 6.3
  • IBM Websphere MQ version 7
  • Solaris 9 Container support within the HA Containers agent - again developed as part of the corresponding project for Open HA Cluster

Clearly anyone deploying Solaris Cluster wants to achieve high availability for an application, or set of applications. Therefor I believe we can be proud on our rich data services portfolio for various standard applications!
