Announcing Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13
By Larry Wake on Mar 13, 2013
Today we released Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 (that's a lot of threes!). This update is specifically for use with Oracle Solaris 10, delivering even more high availability and disaster recovery capabilities for mission-critical application deployments.
What makes Oracle Solaris Cluster better? It's integrated with Oracle Solaris at the kernel level, offering faster and more accurate failure detection and mitigation. Oracle Solaris 10 of course has groundbreaking availability features such as predictive self healing built into it; combine that with Oracle Solaris Cluster and you've created an environment that stands up to surprises such as facilities outages and significantly reduces unplanned downtime.
Highlights in this release:
- Expanded disaster recovery solution with ZFS Storage Appliance replication
- New agents for Oracle Web Tier for Oracle Fusion, PeopleSoft Job Scheduler, and SAP NetWeaver
- Multi-cluster dependency management for Oracle Database 11g through Oracle External Proxy
- Automated set up and configuration for application agents through configuration wizards
for PeopleSoft and WebLogic Server
- Faster deployment of virtualized HA configurations via the zone cluster configuration wizard
- Faster failure detection and failfast for storage devices, reducing storage failure detection time and client timeout from minutes to seconds
Oracle Premier Support for Oracle Solaris Cluster for Oracle Solaris 10 will be available
through 2018, after which it will enter Oracle's standard three
years extended and indefinite sustaining support, per the Oracle
Lifetime Support Policy.
