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
    completeOpenStack
    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 isolatedKernel 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
    integratescompliance
    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-drivenSoftware-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.
