It's been seven years since the release of Solaris 10, and about one year later than originally slated, but Oracle officially released Solaris 11 today.
Oracle Solaris 11 is here and Oracle has proclaimed it to be the "First Cloud OS" and also the "first fully virtualized operating system."
Oracle also is pushing the Solaris Zones, ZFS, and security features of Solaris 11 with this being the first major Solaris release since Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems.
Those interested in Oracle Solaris 11 can find details in the Oracle press release
Last year marked the initial release of Solaris 11 Express
, but sadly Solaris hasn't been too interesting to us since Oracle killed off OpenSolaris
and other changes
happened under Oracle's control
