Announcing Solaris 11.2 - Engineered for Cloud

Today Oracle is pleased to announce Oracle Solaris 11.2 - Engineered for Cloud.

Download Oracle Solaris 11.2 Beta


Oracle Solaris 11.2 is a result of Oracle’s increased investment in systems. With the release of Oracle Solaris 11.2 Beta, we’ve made it more than just an OS. Oracle Solaris is now a platform designed to take enterprise deployments from "zero to cloud" in minutes rather than days or weeks. It’s a complete platform for quickly and simply building secure and compliant enterprise clouds.



New feature highlights include:

  • Oracle Solaris 11.2  includes a complete OpenStack distribution, the popular cloud solution, allowing unified management of heterogeneous data center environments. An OpenStack Unified Archive allows administrators to go from zero to enterprise in 10 minutes or less.

  • No compromise virtualization with enhanced Oracle Solaris Zones. Oracle  Solaris 11.2 brings an even greater level of flexibility with independent and isolated Kernel Zones.

  • Unified Archives are a new, simple and highly flexible snapshot and disaster recovery feature that allows for flexible redeployment of multiple VMs in cloud environments.

  • Oracle Solaris 11.2 integrates compliance reporting that dramatically reduces the time needed for compliance review by as much as 10x. The generated reports also describe how to resolve any out-of-policy conditions detected.

  • Application-driven Software-Defined Networking allows you to build virtual networks beyond system boundaries by using the existing network fabric where possible, or using tunneling, if required. They give the applications like Oracle RAC and Java VMs the ability to specify the SLAs for the application traffic, resulting in higher uptime, lower latency and better performance.
