Sun's Open HA Cluster Contribution to Open Source Community
By bobwientzen on Jun 27, 2007
Today Sun made its first
contribution of HA Cluster source-code to the OpenSolaris community. With this first release of the agents source Sun aims to make it
easier and quicker for community members to develop new agents for Sun
Cluster. System administrators, developers, and ISVs who want to make
their applications highly-available should all benefit.
You can check out the HA Clusters community group on opensolaris.org. You can also sign up to participate in the discussion group.
The press release describes the phases of the release over the next 18 months. The HA Clusters community will cover all topics related to High-Availability Clusters, not just the open-source version of Solaris Cluster.
Sun has also released the source-code for the Dataservices Automated
Test Suite (DATS), which tests the Solaris Cluster Agents code. DATS is part of the Solaris Cluster Automated Test Environment
“CTI for TET”, which is part of the SCATE test infrastructure, has been separately open-sourced on the testing community. This framework contains over 24,000 lines of code and supports both Solaris Cluster and ON test suites: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/testing/testsuites/ctifortet/
To see what Nicholas Solter of the Open HA Cluster team has to say about it, check out his blog:
Solaris Cluster is Sun's High Availability Cluster offering.
The Solaris Cluster source code base is called “Open High Availability (HA) Cluster”. See:
