Solaris is used throughout the whole organization for hosting Oracle databases and for controlling the resources available to the database.

It is massively scalable with CPU networking, storage resource management included. Virtualization is built-in allowing segregation of virtual environments from the physical.
  • Database hosting.
  • Storage management via ZFS.
It is well suited for the hosting of Oracle databases and applications such as Oracle Financials.

For an organization hosting databases, it is great. Everything and everyone can be isolated. Resources such as networking. can be managed to control bandwidth or CPUs can be allocated according to load.

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. We are moving our remaining Solaris 10 systems to Solaris 11. Furthermore, we use dTrace for troubleshooting.
  • 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.
