Deploying Oracle Database on the Oracle Solaris Platform - An Introduction
This paper is intended for Oracle DBAs who want to understand the benefits of deploying Oracle databases on the Oracle Solaris 10 environment. The Oracle Solaris Operating System delivers enterprise-grade performance, massive scalability, flexible virtualization, and unparalleled security. It runs across the entire range of Sun SPARC and x64 platforms from entry level servers to 64-processor servers like the Oracle's Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 server. Not only does the Oracle Solaris Operating System scale across systems of different sizes, it scales across different technologies and hardware platforms by delivering binary compatibility within the SPARC and x86 processor families.
