Oracle Solaris 11.2 for Cloud Computing

When Oracle released Solaris 11 back in 2011, I blogged about it here:
https://blogs.oracle.com/drcloud/entry/what_s_a_cloud_operating.
Even at that time, Solaris 11 was fully capable of meeting the operating system requirements for building scalable and elastic cloud infrastructures. Now, with the recent release of Oracle Solaris 11.2 there is more reason to seriously consider Solaris-based private cloud computing, both on Oracle's Intel/x86 servers, and especially on SPARC servers.
New in Solaris 11.2 are additional cloud-enabling features such as the Elastic Virtual Switch and support for OpenStack. Add to that the benefit of running your private cloud infrastructure on the fastest and most scalable SPARC servers, and you really have no excuse to overlook Oracle's cloud technologies!
About

The purpose of this blog is to highlight and to explore general issues around "Cloud Computing" -- its benefits, risks, and component technologies -- and how they are evolving. I'll also periodically comment (of course!) on Oracle's Cloud Computing capabilities, resources, and cloud-related events. -- Harry J Foxwell, PhD, Principal Consultant for Cloud Computing, Oracle Public Sector HW
