Solaris Cluster on OpenSolaris

The source code that went out today for the first time allows Solaris Cluster to be built for and run on the OpenSolaris binary distribution. This is a small but important step in project Colorado.

In other news about project Colorado, Thorsten wrote a great post outlining the various reasons that Solaris Cluster on OpenSolaris is not just a “compile and run” exercise. There are some significant technical issues that we must address.

Finally, I want to point out that Solaris Cluster Express 9/08 was released last week. This build of Solaris Cluster runs on Solaris Express build 97, and contains some exciting new features that have not yet been released in Solaris Cluster 3.2, such as "zone clusters."

Solaris Cluster Express 6/08 available

As I announced to the OpenSolaris community yesterday, we've released a new version of Solaris Cluster Express. SCX, as we call it, is a build of Solaris Cluster for Solaris Express. This release runs on SXCE build 86. If you don't want to build the cluster source code yourself, this binary distribution is a good option for trying out Solaris Cluster / Open HA Cluster on OpenSolaris.

Solaris Cluster Express 7/07 available

The first release of Solaris Cluster Express is now available for download.

Solaris Cluster Express 7/07 is a complete version of Solaris Cluster that runs on Solaris Express Community Edition build 68. You can install and run Solaris Cluster Express 7/07 on SPARC based platforms and on 32-bit or 64-bit x86 based platforms.

As the tech lead on this effort, I'm particularly pleased that we were able to release it so quickly after our first Solaris Cluster source-code release last month.

My colleague, Thorsten, wrote a great summary of the reasons that this is a particularly exciting release.

You can also browse the installation instructions.

Please check it out and give us your feedback!
