The Solaris 10 OS is a proven, industry-leading operating system that is supported on over 1,000 x86 and SPARC-based platforms and runs over 11,000 unique applications. With over two decades of Sun/Oracle collaboration, there are more Oracle database deployments on the SPARC/Solaris combination than any other OS and Sun is leading the way to bring high-performance solutions for the entire range of Oracle products.
Like previous versions of the Solaris OS, Solaris 10 10/09 leverages the innovation and contributions of the OpenSolaris community, including investments by third-party companies such as Intel and AMD. Additionally, installation, update and patch features have been enhanced; support for new systems and power management capabilities are now available; and Solaris ZFS has been updated to integrate Flash technology, the next revolution in storage hardware, into the operating system in Solaris 10 10/09. Solaris ZFS also now allows administrators greater flexibility in setting usage limits in several ways, including by individual file system, user or group.
