InfoWorld, July 2nd, 2015

"What happens when the people behind one of the most influential operating systems of the last 50 years or so decide they don't like what's happened to the language they wrote their OS in?

It turns out they decide to rebuild it their own way. That's what happened when Unix creators Rob Pike and Ken Thompson (who wrote the original B language that formed the foundation of the entire family of C-derived languages we use) felt it was time to develop a new systems-level programming language, with a focus on speeding up software development..."

The Unix operating system is designed for business-critical tasks and brings with it complete enterprise distribution of the free cloud software OpenStack. The combination of server and Solaris 11.2 enables companies to build an IT infrastructure in which cloud and on-premises applications can run in parallel on the same system. Users can therefore move their IT activities to a hybrid cloud, and thereby retain their local applications..."
