I was in on the press conference when Sun announced its support for Postgres on Solaris are here are the main points:

DTrace Performance Tuning
DTrace Provider
Solaris Service Manifest
Container Aware
Sun Studio Optimizations
Sun Cluster Postgres Agent
Sun Support 24x7 Worldwide


They also said that this could be just the start for other OSS databases. Postgres was a better fit for Solaris because of certain enterprise features. It will be available for Soalris X86 and SPARC.
