Open High Availability Cluster
By Nicholas Solter on Jun 20, 2007
Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that I haven’t written much about my recent work at Sun. That silence hasn’t been due to lack of interesting material. Quite the contrary. The reticence is because I couldn’t discuss my work publicly. I still can’t give too many details, but the overview is that I’m the technical lead on the initiative to open-source the Solaris Cluster product group.
Sun Microsystems will contribute to the community the source code for
Solaris Cluster, Sun's commercial HA Cluster product group, under the
name “Open High Availability Cluster.” This contribution will start at
the time of community formation with the Sun Cluster Agents source for a
wide portfolio of applications.
I’m pleased to report that my proposal was unanimously approved today by the OpenSolaris Governing Board. I’m excited to start building the HA Clusters community!
