Oracle Solaris SDN and Network Virtualization

 


Oracle takes another big leap forward in networking technologies providing a reliable, secure and scalable infrastructure to meet the growing needs of today's datacenter implementations. Oracle Solaris 11 introduces a new and powerful network stack architecture, also know as Project Crossbow.

  • Network virtualization with Virtual NICs (VNICs) and virtual switching
  • Tight integration with Oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle Solaris 10 Zones
  • Network resource management, efficient and easy to manage integrated QoS to enforce bandwidth limits on VNICs and traffic flows
  • Optimized network stack that reacts to network load levels
  • Build a "datacenter in a box"
  • Flexible cloud networking with support for Edge Virtual Bridging and Data Center Bridging protocols
