Another localized release!
By melinchina on Sep 27, 2008
This time it's Solaris Cluster Express 9/08, available in eight languages simultaneously - English, German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. This 'simultaneously' part is a big deal for us in the Globalization team - it means we have to start localizing the software while the engineers are still working on it and the writers are just starting to write the documentation. Most of our releases today are 'sim ships' but that doesn't minimize the accomplishment each time we pull it off so hats off to the members of the G11n team who worked on this one - Kazuhiko Maekawa, Jacky Cao, Jan Hnatek and William Xue. Great work guys!
So what exactly is Sun Cluster Express? It's a complete version of Sun™ Cluster 3.2 software that runs on Solaris Express Community Edition Build 97. In addition to language support in so many languages, it has all kinds of goodness in it like an upgraded Sun Management Center, enhanced fencing mechanisms, zone clusters, a loopback file driver device, and of course many bug fixes. The Sun Cluster blog has many more details.
Why don't you give it a spin?
