Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 5/11 released today !

Oracle announces Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 5/11 delivering unrivaled High Availability (HA) on the Oracle Solaris OS for the largest selection of enterprise applications and databases. Oracle Solaris Cluster unique HA solution for Oracle Solaris' virtual environments lowers the inherent risk of consolidated infrastructures by leveraging redundancy to protect from outages. Oracle Solaris Cluster Disaster Recovery (DR) option extends these benefits to multi-site, multi-cluster architectures to protect against planned and unplanned downtime, in physical and virtual environments.

• Sub-second failure detection and shorter service recovery time through Oracle Solaris kernel-level integration
• Increases service levels in virtual environments based on Oracle Solaris Containers and Oracle VM for SPARC
• Delivers secure cluster wide virtual environment with fault and resource isolation and separate administrative domain
• Out-of-the-box support of extensive set of leading applications and databases eliminating lengthy scripting to deploy application in a clustered environment.
• High Availability for key enterprise application in pre-tested, pre-engineered optimized solutions with Oracle Sun SPARC and x86 servers and Sun storage
   ("optimized solutions" linked to http://www.oracle.com/us/solutions/optimized-solutions-171609.html)
• Significantly reduced recovery time in disaster situation through automated take over by surviving sites

New features include :

- Oracle ACFS and Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage appliance as NFS server
- Extended Cluster validation tool for easier diagnosability
- New versions of enterprise applications including Oracle Database and SAP
supported in Oracle Solaris Container clusters
- DR : Oracle Solaris ZFS supported with storage based replication, Oracle Dataguard
supported with  Oracle single instance database and new tree-data-center topology
- New wizards for setting up of Oracle 11g Release 2 in Oracle Solaris Cluster environment
