Solaris is the operating system we use to host our databases and applications. It serves to keep our environment secure with its built in compliance features. In addition we leverage ZFS as well.

  • Live update for patching in conjunction with the package management functions. This ability to rollback is very convenient.
  • dTrace
  • Built in compliance testing.
  • It seems that Solaris is becoming an afterthought at Oracle.
  • Oracle should be more vocal in their commitment to Solaris
  • Support Costs
For running Oracle databases, Solaris can't be beat. Leveraging Zones allows for virtualization out of the box. In addition, using zones with clustering can make migrating from Solaris 10 to 11 very easy. Finally, in an enterprise environment that requires 24/7 up-time and meeting SLA's, Solaris is a viable and robust choice.
