Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Solaris

Oracle Solaris is our core operating system for Oracle Database and Java applications. It would be helpful if the solution offered backend management. The backup capabilities are quite good. We use Oracle Solaris to develop and support our VDCF (Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework) management software. The stability of the solution is good.
  • Preferred Operating System to run Oracle Databases
  • Performs well with Java and Oracle applications
  • Great for Virtualizations.
  • Currently, there are two variants, there's SPARC and there's x86. I would have wanted a scenario where they're all just one product.
  • It doesn't have a user-friendly interface.
  • Solaris' package management could be improved, especially in comparison to Linux.
  • Stability
  • Compatibility with Oracle Hardware and Software
  • Easy of use
  • Possibility to migrate old servers protecting previous inversions
  • reduces implementation times and accelerates time to obtain value in the market.
Oracle Solaris is Scalable, have a good patching capability and secure by default. You want to have something that's up and running and stable, something that's not going to crash. But if we do have an issue, we can get somebody for technical support who can help us work through the problems.

Do you think Oracle Solaris delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Oracle Solaris's feature set?


Did Oracle Solaris live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Oracle Solaris go as expected?


Would you buy Oracle Solaris again?


Oracle Solaris is great due to the fact that it actually is meant for high-end servers.
Supports a wide range of hardware.
The Stability of the solution is great.
The documentation does not support some solutions, and there are no other options.
Most of the product is still command-line, despite the fact that they've got a graphical user interface in some areas. For some reason, core administration is still done via command-line.
