Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

Nevada has been Solaris 11 for so long I almost forgot it would one day be an actual release.

Yeah, I've been running on Solaris 11 Express snv_151 since last winter and and updated to 151a this summer. It's all been great as a preview and I can't wait to get some services on this.

Of most interest is crossbow. On older released we had to do funky things with provisioning zones based on the network they live on versus having the global doll out zones and connect them to separate VLANs. The reason this was a problem in older releases was static routes in the global.

With deduplication, there are opportunities for backup solutions too.

Not really. Solaris 11 is not based on Nevada. It's based on Indiana! It's a much more radical change from the classic Solaris than you would imagine and much closer to a GNU/Linux distro in some aspects. It still has the Solaris goodies that no Linux distro has.
