The SPARC T5 Servers have landed

At last, the SPARC T5 servers are announced! They are worthy heirs of the SPARC T-series, and even more powerful than their popular technology predecessors the SPARC T4

    Summary of the Solaris 11 webcast's livechat QnA session

    This is a followup post to the previous summary on the "What's new with Solaris 11 since the launch" webcast. That webcast has had a chatroom for a live Questions and Answers session running.

This is the first part, covering the QnA of Session I and II of the webcast, in a followup post we can have a look of the rest of the sessions if required - let me know in the comments. Also, should you have questions, as usual, feel free to ask those there too. [Read More]
