Sun Releases Solaris 10 5/09

The latest update release of Solaris 10 is available now.

Highlights of Solaris 10 5/09 include:

  • The Power Aware Dispatcher, which automatically monitors and optimizes a company's system to maximize performance while minimizing power consumption. For example, it can be used in conjuction with Intel's new Deep C-States to dramatically reduce power consumed by idle cores.
  • Solaris Containers updates including the ability to leverage ZFS filesystem cloning as the basis for container cloning - to provide significant speed and efficiency improvements
  • The Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) suite of security protocols integration with Solaris Service Manager, allowing simplified management of overall security functions. IPsec is also now usable as the interconnect for Solaris Cluster, to manage fast, secure failover of session information among nodes of a cluster
  • Logical Domains (LDoms) enhancements including virtual disk updates to streamline performance and extended VTOC (virtual table of contents) support for very large files, as well as VNET and VSW support for jumbo frames
  • SSH performance enhancements on CMT systems, such as the ability to leverage hardware crypto acceleration on UltraSPARC T2 based systems
Full technical details on what's new in Solaris 10 5/09 are available here.

All the enhancements in Solaris 10 5/09 are happening in conjunction with the global OpenSolaris community, which Intel is a key contributor to.

Look for more about OpenSolaris during the upcoming CommunityOne conference, being held June 1st in San Francisco.
