Oracle and SUN "Several of the concerns about Oracle's acquisition of Sun have revolved around how Unix technologies led by Sun would continue under the new ownership. As it turns out, Solaris users might not have much to worry about, as Oracle executives on Wednesday affirmed their commitment to preserving the efforts. In the case of Solaris, Oracle had already been a big supporter of the rival Linux operating system. Oracle has its own Enterprise Linux offering, based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. For Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, the idea that Linux and Solaris are mutually exclusive is a false choice."

The point is, you just zip an old Solaris v8 server, and then drop that zip file into an Solaris 10 Zone, and now you can get rid of your old server.

Hi there, I have a Solaris 2.5 @ work. The hardware is the Enterprise 3000 that is dieing. The SAP guy told us that the SAP is too old, cannot be upgraded, must run on 2.5. Could you please advise the best way forward?
Thanx & regards
