Oracle Solaris 11 Express Released!

Saturday, February 19, 2011 at 8:23 PM
Solaris 11 Express has finally been released! This has been a long time in coming and I'm very excited to finally see this day. Just so that folks are clear, this is a full express release with support for developers, system administrators, evaluators, enthusiasts, etc. on x86 and SPARC! It is totally free to use as long as it is not used on production. As you can see on the main link above, Oracle is selling a full suite of support for Solaris 11 Express, if you are looking for support or to use it in production. Oracle is dead serious about Solaris, so make no mistake about it!

Needless to say, I'll be busy downloading and upgrading my systems to this release. I'll make some additional blog posts once I have things in place to take it for a full spin on both x86 and SPARC. I'll leverage my Ultra 20, some VirtualBox instances, and some LDoms to make things interesting!
