16 Jul 2015 Solaris 11.3 zones blog entries [44436]
By Mike Gerdts

Mike Gerdts writes, "When I was interviewing with the zones team a number of years ago, I was told that Zones were the peanut butter that was spread throughout the operating system. I'm not so sure peanut butter is exactly the analogy that I'd go for... perhaps something a bit more viscous and hip like Sriracha sauce. Whatever the analogy, there's a lot of innovation related to zones throughout Solaris by people that don't work on the zones team. Here's a sampling of zones-related hotness in Solaris 11.3 blogged about elsewhere..."

07 Jul 2015 Release of Oracle Solaris 11.3 Beta [44145]
Making Solaris the most advanced enterprise cloud platform

Markus Flierl blogs, that Oracle released, "a beta for Solaris 11.3, less than a year after we released Solaris 11.2.

With Solaris 11.2 we turned Solaris into a comprehensive cloud platform which includes virtualization, SDN and OpenStack. Since the release of Solaris 11.2 we've seen a rapid uptake of these new capabilities: A lot of customers a using Unified Archives for deploying their images, are taking advantage of the immutable root-file system, have started to deploy Kernel Zones and OpenStack and take advantage of the automated compliance reporting. The latter has become a lot easier since we are tracking the CVE meta data with IPS..."

07 Jul 2015 Secure Live Migration [44156]
With Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones

Listey blogs, "One of the key features of the Oracle Solaris 11.3 Beta release is the introduction of Secure Live Migration for Kernel Zones. This feature brings with it a couple of things of note.

08 Jun 2015 Solaris 11.2 proves to be a cloud-worthy Oracle OS [43379]
Oracle's Solaris 11.2 includes cloud-ready features such as a complete OpenStack distribution, kernel zones, Unified Archives and Elastic Virtual Switch.

Robert Sheldon writes in SearchOracle, "When Oracle released Solaris 11, the company hawked its operating system as the first OS built for the cloud. Oracle continued its cloud-centric pitch with the release of Solaris 11.2. Yet such pronouncements tell us little about what makes Solaris so cloud worthy. Fortunately, we don't have to look far. Solaris 11.2 includes four important technologies that can be instrumental in an effective cloud implementation: OpenStack, kernel zones, Unified Archives (UA) and Elastic Virtual Switch (EVS)..."
