My colleague Sylvain post
summed it up nicely what it is:
Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle Unified Directory is a complete solution - Software and Harware engineered to work together.
It implements Oracle Unified Directory software on Oracle's SPARC T4 servers to provide highly available and extremely high performance directory services for the entire enterprise infrastructure and applications. The solution is architected, optimized, and tested to deliver simplicity, performance, security, and savings in enterprise environments.

While that post is short - it is dense with information.
So to explain it simpler - within Oracle we have a team (Optimized Solutions) who work with our product teams to show how our customers can get the best performance out of our hardware when running a specific software package. Instead of just giving you a generic tuning guide for our product - we've gone through the tuning steps and tested the configuration(s) for you. Thus besides giving you great performance - it's faster & simpler deployment because you can reduce the time it takes to run a tuning exercise from scratch.
Optimized solutions simplifies that exercise because we've already done most (if not all) of the work for you. Click here

I'm happy today to be able to share that we released an optimized solution for Oracle Unified Directory. It's one of the first public announcements we can make of several cool & useful things we've been working on. We have more coming from identity & access team. Which reminds me - for my loyal readers here - since December 2011 - besides covering directory - I am also now on the Oracle Access Manager Suite team.
