Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Release = Oracle Solaris 10 Update 9 released on Sept 8, 2010

Yesterday, September 8, 2010 Oracle officially announced Oracle Solaris 10 9/10, Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 and Oracle Solaris Studio12.2. For now we will be concentrating on Oracle Solaris 10 9/10.


 
Here is a history of Solaris 10 Update releases –

 
Solaris 10 3/05 = Solaris 10 (FCS == First Customer Ship)
Solaris 10 01/06 = Solaris 10 Update 1
Solaris 10 06/06 = Solaris 10 Update 2
Solaris 10 11/06 = Solaris 10 Update 3
Solaris 10 8/07 Release = Solaris 10 Update 4
Solaris 10 5/08 Release = Solaris 10 Update 5
Solaris 10 10/08 Release = Solaris 10 Update 6
Solaris 10 5/09 Release = Solaris 10 Update 7
Solaris 10 10/09 Release = Solaris 10 Update 8  >>>> Currently we are here.
Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Release = Oracle Solaris 10 Update 9 >>>> New Release

 

So what Solaris 10 U9 includes, let’s take quick tour –

 
There are some drastic changes under this update –
  • The most awaited, Oracle Solaris Containers now provide enhanced “P2V” (Physical to Virtual) capabilities to allow customers to seamlessly move from existing Oracle Solaris 10 physical systems to virtual containers quickly and easily. At our project we developed a custom method to perform p2v from Solaris8/9 to Solaris 10 Container and to be honest we was really looking forward for this feature.
  • Host ID Emulation - Migration of a physical Solaris 10 machine into a Zone with support for the HostID will allow more network management platforms to be virtualized while still retaining their licensing features.
  • Oracle 11g Release 2 Support
  • Networking and database optimizations for Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC).
  • Increased reliability for virtualized Solaris instances when deployed using Oracle VM for SPARC, also known as Logical Domains.
ZFS Changes –

 
  • ZFS device replacement enhancements - namely autoexpand
  • some changes to the zpool list command
  • Holding ZFS snapshots
  • Triple parity RAID-Z (raidz3)
  • The logbias property
  • Log device removal - at last
  • ZFS storage pool recovery
  • New ZFS system process – In this release, each storage pool has an associated process, zpool-poolname
  • Splitting a mirrored ZFS storage pool (zpool split)
