Solaris Cluster 3.2u1 or 2/08 has launched! You'll find that most of the vendors listed on the matrix are supported or in the process of supporting this latest release. You can always find the latest updates at the OSP URL, where we welcome your comments and feedback. 

We've got some significant updates this month in relation to increasing the Solaris Cluster node count on two particular configurations. The first being EMC, where we now have (16) node connectivity on Symmetrix Arrays supported on various platforms.

\* Solaris and Solaris Cluster connected to EMC Symmetrix storage is now supported in combinations between (8) and (16) nodes. Support includes the following Sun Servers platforms:  T1000/T2000, M4000/M5000/M8000 along with T5120 and T5220. Combinations of servers are supported on Symmetrix 800 and 1000 arrays. Solaris 10 11/06, 8/07 and 4/08 along with Solaris Cluster 3.2 are included.

For the details of these specific configurations, always reference the Solaris Cluster Open Storage matrix or the EMC, External Support matrix.

In other EMC related configurations, ZFS and MPxIO are now supported with EMC on Solaris 10x86 (Opteron) and Solaris 10 11/16 (Sparc).

Solaris Cluster on NetApp rounds out the server node increases with the NAS storage product being increased from (32) to (48) node attach. We've also included the following servers as updates to the matrix; M4000/5000/8000/9000 along with Sparc Enterprise T5120 and T5220, Sun Fire x4150and x4450. Sun Blade T6300, T6320, T6220 and T6250 are included.

In other related news, Solaris Cluster on HP now includes the new EVA 4400 Storage Array which is a significant addition to the Solaris Cluster storage portfolio.

Until next time.
