Guest Author

We are proud to announce the availability of the third revision of Solaris Cluster Express (SCX). You can download the DVD image from here .
What is new in this release?
1) This release of SCX runs on the recently released Solaris Express Developer's Edition 1/08, aka SXDE 1/08.  SCX includes an easy to configure/deploy "Web Stack" consisting of Apache, MySQL, and PHP on top of OpenSolaris. Needless to say, we provide high availability (HA) for everything in need of one in the stack! SXDE 1/08 includes the xVM feature, and if you are interested in the HA-xVM agent that is being developed by the OHAC community, then this release of SCX is the one that you've got to use! For more details, please visit http://opensolaris.org/os/project/ha-xvm/.
2) This SCX release also includes the binaries of the first agent to be developed by the OHAC community: HA-Informix. With this agent, you can make your Informix deployment on Solaris/OpenSolaris highly available! The package to add is SUNWscids. For more details, visit HA Informix Project page.

3.) SCX 2/08 includes the binaries of the recently open-sourced Solaris Cluster Express Geographic Edition, which can be used for disaster-recovery purposes.

4.) This release includes mandatory bug fixes and other improvements.
For the complete list of bug fixes, please visit http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/ha-clusters/ohac/Documentation/Agents/ohacds_changelog/.
