01 Oct 2012 Oracle Solaris ZFS: An Overview [27820]
Oracle Solaris: In a Class by Itself Podcast

This episode of "Oracle Solaris: In a Class By Itself" features an explanation by Cindy Swearingen, Principal Technical Writer, of Oracle Solaris ZFS, described as a file system with built-in volume management features. Swearingen stresses the built-in redundancy in ZFS pools, which provides security for stored data with the added capability of not only detecting but repairing hardware failures in a file system and for creating two- and even three-way mirrored pools. Snapshots of updates and the deduplication feature of ZFS are further means of ensuring data integrity, she noted, adding a comment on the encryption capability of ZFS.

25 Jul 2011 Oracle Solaris Security: It's a Given [24358]
Oracle Solaris: In a Class By Itself

"Oracle Solaris Security" is the topic under discussion in this episode of Oracle Solaris: In a Class by Itself. Bill Nesheim, VP of Oracle Solaris Engineering, Chris Armes, Senior Director of Oracle Solaris Engineering, and Alex Barclay, Product Manager for Oracle Solaris Security, join host Charlie Boyle. By design, the panel observes, security is part and parcel of Oracle Solaris, which has been developed within the Oracle Software Assurance process. As a result, users can protect data both at rest (e.g. with the new ZFS on-disk encryption), or in motion (e.g. with the built-in cryptographic framework). They can as well reduce insider risk with Role Based Access Control, and use Zones as a security isolation feature, capitalizing on its new delegated administration capabilities. In addition, together with process privileges, customers can add modern security policies to legacy applications without changing them, which offers enough granularity to meet their specific security requirements.
