Oracle is committed to protect your investment in Oracle Solaris and is mindful of your mission-critical environments and resources. Since January 2017, Oracle Solaris 11 follows a Continuous Delivery model, delivering new functionality as updates to the existing release. This means you are not required to upgrade to gain access to new features and capabilities. Oracle Support provides support for Oracle Solaris 11 through at least 2031 under Oracle Premier Support and Extended Support through 2034. These dates will be evaluated annually for updates.

In addition, the agile deployment of Oracle Solaris 11 allows customers to take advantage of more frequent, simpler, and less disruptive delivery of new features and capabilities. This helps with faster adoption and eliminates the need for slow and expensive re-qualifications.
