Oracle and SUN Oracle executives talked up on Thursday the planned Solaris 11 release due in 2011, with the Unix OS upgrade offering advancements in availability, security, and virtualization. The OS will feature next-generation networking capabilities for scalability and performance, said John Fowler, Oracle executive vice president of systems, at a company event in Santa Clara, Calif. "It's a complete reworking of [the] enterprise OS," he said. Oracle took over Solaris when the company acquired Sun Microsystems early this year.

Oracle didn't need to rework Solaris ... it's been evolving nicely on it's own (transparency/OSS issues aside). I look forward to maintaining it at many of my customer sites over the next decade. It's a solid enterprise OS selection and will be for the foreseeable future.

BTW, Solaris 11 Express is both production ready and Oracle supportable, as corrected in the parent article.
