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)..."

21 Apr 2015 Understanding Time Zone Updater 2.0 [42095]
Java needs to keep track of time zone information

Aurelio Garcia-Ribeyro writes, "Different places in the world are in different time zones so Java needs to keep track of time zone information.

Such information gets complicated when one considers rules for Daylight Saving Time across regions. There are some places where Daylight Saving Time changes occur multiple times per year. In Morocco, for example, changes occur in March, and October as well as around Ramadan. The rules can vary from country to country and in some cases within a country. These rules are updated from time to time. In the United States they were last updated in 2007..."

14 Jan 2015 kernel zones vs. fs resources [40349]
By Mike Gerdts

Mike writes, "Traditionally, zones have had a way to perform loopback mounts of global zone file systems using zonecfg fs resources with fstype=lofs. Since kernel zones run a separate kernel, lofs is not really an option. Other file systems can be safely presented to kernel zones by delegating the devices, so the omission of fs resources is not as bad as it may initially sound.

For those that really need something that works like a lofs fs resource, there's a way to simulate the functionality with NFS. Consider the following system..."
