Oracle has introduced Solaris 11 Express, to provide network virtualisation and resource management with complete, built-in virtualisation capabilities, and performance virtualisation environment with low overhead.
Oracle Solaris 11 Express powers the Exadata X2-2 and X2-8 Database Machines, and Exalogic Elastic Cloud machine and features an easy-to-use, production-ready package, that allows customers to use the new Solaris features to deploy new applications.
In addition, the new features also reduce planned downtime up to 50%, by eliminating traditional patching and maintenance related reboots and vastly improving system boot time to tens of seconds.
The company has also integrated its My Oracle Support telemetry with the Oracle Solaris fault management architecture that allows customers to receive proactive and preemptive support and reduces service outages from known issues.
The Oracle Solaris is an enterprise operating system that provides mission-critical availability, security and performance on both SPARC and x86 systems.
