Oracle Solaris 11 Virtualization Technology

 


Oracle Solaris 11 is a complete, integrated and open platform engineered for large-scale enterprise environments. Its built in virtualization provides a highly efficient and scalable solution that sits at the core of that platform. With the inclusion of Kernel Zones, Oracle Solaris 11 provides a flexible, cost efficient, cloud ready solution perfect for the data center. Enhancements and new features include:

  • OS version flexibility with Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones
  • Cloud ready: a core feature of the OpenStack distribution included in Oracle Solaris 11
  • Rapid adoption with support for Oracle Solaris 10 Zones on Oracle Solaris 11
  • Integration with the Oracle Solaris 11 Software Defined Networking
  • Read only security with Immutable
  • Enhanced mobility with Zones on Shared Storage
  • Simple to deploy and update enabled by tight integration into the Lifecycle Management system
