We've been trying to flesh out our technology pages for Oracle Solaris 11 over on the Oracle Technology Network. Recently we've added 3 new technology spotlights:
- Best Platform for Database
- Oracle Database on Oracle Solaris helps customers lower IT costs and delivers a high quality of service by enabling consolidation onto database clouds and engineered systems.
- Optimized for SPARC
- Oracle Solaris 11 and the new T5 and M5 SPARC family combine to deliver the world's fastest servers. Use these SPARC Solaris systems to get the best performance and scalability for your most demanding enterprise environments including Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware and business applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, along with hundreds of business applications from partners such as SAP, SAS and Temenos.
- DTrace Dynamic Tracing
- Oracle Solaris DTrace is a comprehensive, advanced tracing tool for troubleshooting systematic problems in real time. Administrators, integrators and developers can use DTrace to dynamically and safely observe live production systems for performance issues, including both applications and the operating system itself.
I've personally worked on the DTrace spotlight, as a place to aggregate some great content that's already out there, including a new simple DTrace Cheatsheet. We'll be adding more to the page over time - enjoy!
