With effect from today, April 1st 2009, Solaris 8 has entered phase two of its end of service life transition. This means that while you can continue to get telephone support and access to existing Solaris 8 patches, you will not get access to any new Solaris 8 patches produced from this date onwards unless you have signed up for a Vintage Patch plan.
For more details on this, please visit our Solaris 8 EOSL page.
You may also want to consider an upgrade to Solaris 10, which is something you can get our help with if you need it. There's a raft of new technology in Solaris 10 that may appeal. We've also done a lot of work maturing the patch and live upgrade infrastructure to make maintaining Solaris 10 even easier.
