Solaris Port to PowerPC

Continuing to expand its horizons, Solaris is moving in new directions. Via Project Pulsar, Sun is porting an OpenSolaris kernel to the PowerPC architecture and additionally, is beginning development on moving Solaris to an embedded operating system, also on PowerPC.

Principal Investigator in Sun Labs on the Pulsar Project, Tom Riddle, joins Hal Stern, Vice President of Global Systems Engineering, for this latest edition of Innovating@Sun. Here, Stern and Riddle discuss:

  • Why Solaris is a great fit with PowerPC
  • The attraction and challenges of the PowerPC market
  • Reactions and interest from the community at large
  • Expansion opportunities for customers on x86 architectures
  • Sun Labs' priorities around Solaris and PowerPC
  • How the community can contribute
