Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

RE[2]: ZFS

Given the rapprochement between Oracle/Apple over Java we might be lucky and see ZFS as part of 10.7 (lion).

That would be freaking nice!

The other features from Solaris I'd like to see for Lion are:
1: Solaris memory manager
2: Solaris scheduler
3: Solaris network stack
4: Solaris process management
5: Solaris init system

Eh, screw it, I'd like to see everything beneath the window server replaced with Solaris - now that would rock.
