Solaris

continues to evolve as the foundation for critical private cloud
implementations.  As the premier href="http://blog.opengroup.org/2015/12/08/the-20th-anniversary-of-the-unix-standard-and-certification/">UNIX
in the IT industry, certified against the exacting href="http://www.opengroup.org/standards/unix">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 href="http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E62357_01/index.html">SPARC's
innovative virtualization technologies and Oracle-supported href="https://www.oracle.com/solaris/openstack/index.html">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 href="http://www.opengroup.org/aboutus/governing">The Open Group
Governing Board ensures that UNIX will maintain and extend its
prominent role in cloud computing.
