Oracle Solaris EC2 blogs moving to oracle.com
By drapeau on Apr 19, 2011
If you had been following OpenSolaris before Sun was acquired by Oracle, you may have seen that the ISV Engineering organization made some virtual guest images of OpenSolaris and posted them to the Amazon Web Service's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). We also have a blog that describes what's available to you to try out on EC2.
Well, Oracle acquired Sun, OpenSolaris is no longer actively promoted as a product by Oracle, and Oracle's direction for Solaris is Solaris 11. As a result, the EC2 team here in ISV Engineering is adapting. We're working on what it would take to publish Solaris 11 Express AMIs (Amazon Machine Images). Technically speaking, it's do-able. The difficult part for us is working out the licensing terms. But we're hard at work for it, so please stay tuned.
Also note that this blog, as with the Sun EC2 blog, will be moving from a sun.com domain to an oracle.com domain. Watch this space for news of our new landing zone!
