Since You Asked... A Couple of Oracle Solaris Resources
By Larry Wake on Feb 26, 2013
OK, you didn't ask (unless you in fact are Adix or Mark), but someone did -- as part of today's Twitter activity, we got to bring up two resources that I thought were worth sharing more broadly.
Mark was asking about moving from AIX to Solaris, and it turns out we have a recent document on just that: the IBM AIX to Oracle Solaris Technology Mapping Guide, subtitled "Preparing for the Move to Oracle Solaris 11". This is a 55-page technical white paper identifying and comparing the differences between AIX 7.1 and Oracle Solaris 11.
During today's webcast on Oracle Solaris on Oracle's x86 systems, we mentioned the bidirectional connection between Oracle Solaris and our x86 systems' service processors, and Adix wanted to know more. There's a white paper on that, too: Oracle’s x86 Systems: The Best x86 Platforms for Oracle Solaris, where it covers, among other things, the "Oracle Solaris–Aware Service Processor" .
If you missed the webcast, by the way,
it should be available for replay starting tomorrow morning it's now available for replay.
