OpenSolaris Appliances

Well the OpenSolaris Appliances community is beginning to take shape. Now the fun part is deciding what it is :) A few wish lists are starting to appear in blogs and on the discussion pages. We have ideas around Qube or Media PC replacement. To Me the media PC is not that interesting without first creating the “Qube” with 2005 technology.


My requirements for OpenSolaris Appliances 1.0

  • NAS server SMB and NFS

  • High performance and low cost

My requirements for OpenSolaris Appliances 2.0

  • NAS server SMB, CIFS, NFS

  • DHCP Server

  • Firewall

  • Name Server DNS and LDAP

  • Print Server

Nice to have in OpenSolaris Appliances 2.0

  • Web Server

  • Mail server

  • Simple & easy management

  • Easy interoperability with other home network devices

So for Me the problem I want to solve first is sharing and securing of several hundred GB of data, this is the key area where I think OpenSolaris can outperform all other appliances. Once We have that done then all the other features should just be software upgrades.
