Get the latest FOSS on Oracle Solaris 11

One of the new initiatives we've launched in the last year is providing early access to new and updated Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) components in Oracle Solaris 11. We've been committed to delivering FOSS software as part of Oracle Solaris for many years now, but it's often been tricky to keep up with the frequence release cadence that many of these upstream open source communities maintain, while still trying to best the most stable and secure enterprise cloud platform.

So if you're looking for a particular new version for use in your data centers, make sure to check the FOSS Evaluation Program as we might have that version that you're looking for. Check out the April 2016 update announced on the Oracle Solaris FOSS blog and the detailed how to article on how you get install these into your environment.

If you've deployed any FOSS on Oracle Solaris 11 recently let us know your experience. Maybe you'd be interested in contributing an article on Oracle Technology Network!
