The UNIX® -Based Cloud
Oracle ® Solaris continues to evolve as the foundation for critical private cloud implementations. As the premier UNIX in the IT industry, certified against the exacting standards of The OpenGroup for enterprise-level operating systems, Solaris 11 enables Oracle customers and partners to provide the elasticity, security, scalability, and stability required for today's demanding Cloud Computing requirements.
As Chris Riggin, Enterprise Architect at Verizon, said at last Fall's Oracle OpenWorld, the cloud services enabled by Solaris provide the massive scaling for Verizon's 135 million customers and 180,000 employees needed to speed service delivery and to maintain Verizon's competitive edge. Using Solaris' and SPARC's innovative virtualization technologies and Oracle-supported OpenStack, Verizon serves both customers and employees with a UNIX-based cloud infrastructure that implements enhanced agility, superior performance, easy maintainability, and effective cost control.
Solaris has continually led the evolution of UNIX as the primary choice for enterprise computing. Oracle's leadership in The Open Group Governing Board ensures that UNIX will maintain and extend its prominent role in cloud computing.
