Oracle Solaris 11.2 Available
By Glynn Foster-Oracle on Aug 01, 2014
We got there in the end, and today, Oracle Solaris 11.2 has been officially made available.
This is the most significant release I've had the pleasure to work on, and we've made huge strides in terms of overall usability, performance, and functionality. There are some really incredible base technologies included in this release - everything from independent kernel versions and patching with Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones, fast and portable clone and disaster recovery images with Unified Archives, simple to use compliance framework built on OpenSCAP, and open cloud infrastructure with OpenStack. With 21 months of hard work, Oracle Solaris 11.2 represents a huge milestone as it shifts from an enterprise-grade operating system, to a comprehensive cloud platform.
