Secure, Simple, and Cloud-Ready

Oracle Solaris is the world’s most advanced enterprise operating system. It provides you continuous innovation and delivery, secures your data, simplifies the system and application lifecycle, and includes cloud capabilities in a single, mission-critical platform.



Oracle Solaris is engineered for cloud security at every level. Antimalware protection extends from hypervisor to application. You can lock down systems and virtual machines, while Silicon Secured Memory seamlessly prevents common security attacks such as buffer over-reads and overwrites. Automatic, hardware-assisted cryptography secures your systems, Oracle Database, Java JCE middleware, and any application.

One step, multinode compliance reporting means you can spend time innovating in your data center rather than auditing your data center.



Integrated lifecycle management technologies allow you to issue a single command to update your entire cloud installation—clear down to the firmware and including all virtualized environments. One large financial services company saw a 16x efficiency gain by managing its virtual machines (VMs) using Oracle Solaris, compared to a third-party open-source platform.

Oracle Developer Studio makes developing applications for Oracle Solaris and Linux simple with a suite of performance and diagnosability tools allowing you to correlate Java performance and bottlenecks to HW quickly.



Oracle Solaris simplifies cloud operations in heterogeneous data center environments. One OS version for your legacy applications, on-premises clouds and public clouds means Oracle Solaris delivers a seamless transition to your enterprise cloud while providing the best security and performance. Achieve the true economic benefit of moving to the cloud without compromising existing enterprise quality. No matter what your enterprise workload, from ERP to DevOps, Oracle Solaris delivers secure, reliable, and agile compute that will set your business up for the new wave of enterprise computing.
