Oracle Solaris 11 Express delivers advanced Oracle Solaris features that have been in development over the past five years. Oracle Solaris 11 Express provides availability features that greatly reduce planned downtime by eliminating traditional patching- and maintenance- related reboots and vastly improving system boot time. It also adds network virtualization and resource management to the complete, built-in virtualization capabilities of Oracle Solaris, providing high-performance virtualization with low overhead.
Oracle Solaris 11 Express also powers Oracle’s Exadata Database Machine X2-2 and Exadata Database Machine X2-8 and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
“We are excited to announce the release of Oracle Solaris 11 Express to enable our customers to deploy the new advanced features of Oracle Solaris 11 across a broad set of platforms and our engineered systems: Oracle Exadata and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud,” says John F., executive vice president, Oracle Hardware. “Through the same engineering disciplines that achieved a legendary mission-critical reputation for Oracle Solaris, we are expecting Oracle Solaris 11 to further reduce any downtime by being quicker and easier to deploy, maintain, and update and to deliver a highly efficient virtualized operating system to meet the scale and performance requirements of immediate and future virtualization and cloud-based deployments.”
