Lots more FOSS added to Solaris 11!

Today Oracle released a set of Selected FOSS Component packages that can be used with/on Solaris 11.3. These packages provide customers with evaluation copies of new and updated versions of FOSS ahead of officially supported Oracle Solaris product releases.

These packages are available at the Oracle Solaris product release repository for customers running Oracle Solaris 11.3 GA. The source code used to build the components is available at the Solaris Userland Project on Java.net. The packages are not supported through any Oracle support channels. Customers can use the software at their own risk.

For more information, check out this blog post.

Industry-leading price/performance, availability and security. And some nifty technology to boot!

We wanted to give a more hands-on constructive view of these very cool products from the sysadmin and open-source perspectives. These boxes work, work well, work fast, and bring intelligent network-based storage roaring into the Enterprise.
