The Latest with Solaris on Amazon EC2
By younseoroh on Apr 20, 2011
We've gone quite for a while on this blog; if you're a reader of this blog, you know that the Oracle acquisition of Sun had a big impact on the status and direction of Solaris and OpenSolaris. The Amazon EC2 AMIs that we provided to this point have been based on OpenSolaris, which is no longer a focus of Oracle / Sun.
We still have those OpenSolaris AMIs on EC2, but we have been investigating what it would take to create Solaris 11-based AMIs (whether from the currently shipping Solaris 11 Express, or the shipping-sometime-in-the-future Solaris 11 release).
We have some details to work out so watch this space for more info.
Meanwhile, if you're eager to get your hands on Solaris 11 Express
in an EC2 environment, please drop us a message at ec2-solaris-support-AT-sun-DOT-com
If you want to know more about technologies in Solaris 11, please check this out.
