Sun Cluster 3.2 Aug'07 News: ..Sun is OpenSource#1..

If you haven't been up to date on the latest news regarding Sun's High Availability offerings with Sun Cluster 3.2 .. (even Open Sourcing it !).. I though this would be the perfect opportunity for a quick recap with a few key articles, WP's, and related links ( many of these are specific to Oracle RAC integration with Sun Cluster ) :


\* Sun Cluster 3.2 Offers the Strongest Integration with Oracle RAC 10gR2..

> Sun Cluster 3.2 Software: Making Oracle Database 10G R2 RAC Even More Unbreakable

 

\* Sun offers up Solaris Cluster as Open Source Gem : (Network World link)

> Sun will post code to High Availability Clusters community on OpenSolaris.org

In case you didn't know, Sun is actually ranked #1 in terms of SW Contributions to the Open Source community! Even BEFORE the JAVA (OpenJDK) OR Sun Cluster contributions, the European Commission on FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) has reflected that Sun contributes to and participates in more open source projects than any other commercial company, including IBM, RedHat, Novell and HP.  See :  (page 51) for the breakdown. http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/ict/policy/doc/2006-11-20-flossimpact.pdf



\*Sun™ Cluster Oracle 10g Grid Reference Architecture Optimizing Scalability and Performance

Suite page at : http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/cluster/index.xml
