Oracle Joins OpenStack Foundation; Plans for Oracle Solaris Announced

Guest Author

Today Oracle announced that it has become a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation, and provided some details about how OpenStack components are intended to be integrated into the Oracle hardware/software stack.  This gives more insight into some of what we discussed at Oracle OpenWorld about plans for the future of Oracle Solaris.

If you're not familiar with OpenStack, it's well worth learning a bit more about. It's arguably the fastest-growing industry collaboration for developing and fleshing out a common cloud management platform. The Oracle Solaris team is looking forward to contributing back to the OpenStack project, and we expect the work we do and the integration we can provide will be of significant benefit to our customers going forward.

And it's not just Oracle Solaris, of course; OpenStack plans are underway for Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, our server systems and storage product line as well.  See the press release for more information.

UPDATE: Markus has just blogged about some of what's in the Oracle Solaris plan for OpenStack.
