Another landmark in OpenSolaris history coming soon, with OpenSolaris 2009.06 being launched tomorrow. If you haven't had a chance to try out OpenSolaris, take a moment and consider it as your platform of choice.
With DTrace, ZFS, Crossbow, Predictive Self healing, Solaris containers, XVM hypervisor, Time Slider etc, OpenSolaris stays at the cutting edge.
And now, OpenSolaris 2009.06 comes to the SPARC platform! Now you can
enjoy the benefits of OpenSolaris on all Sun4v based platforms
(UltraSPARC T1 and T2) and Sun4u based platforms (UltraSPARC I, II, III and IV) with an OBP level of 4.17 or greater.
It is supported on hundreds of leading-edge x86 systems from all major vendors and sold by IBM, Dell, HP, Fujtisu (SPARC and x86) other than Sun. OpenSolaris 2009.06 is one of the first platforms to fully support Intel's new Xeon 5500 processor, with substantially increased performance, better power efficiency, improved reliability and
cost effective virtualization for x64.
World class support backed by a whooping 33000 employees company (which is going to increase)
