Oracle to Integrate Docker Into Oracle Solaris Zones and Provide an Enterprise Class DevOps Solution

Oracle is making significant moves to drive Oracle Solaris into cloud environments. After including a full distribution of OpenStack in Oracle Solaris 11.2 last year, the company today announced plans to integrate Docker into Oracle Solaris. The integration will allow enterprise customers to use the Docker open platform to easily distribute applications built and deployed in Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris' built-in virtualization technology. Oracle also plans to make software including Oracle WebLogic Server available for development and testing as Docker images.

how-to explains how you can discover existing kernel zones

Owen Allen blogs, "One of the new features in Ops Center 12.3 is support for Oracle Solaris kernel zones. I wanted to talk a bit about this, because there are some caveats, and a new document to help you with using this type of zone.

By Mike Gerdts

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..."
