Oracle Solaris is the number one enterprise UNIX, and the top deployment operating system for Oracle Database for several years running. The reasons for this are clear: Oracle Solaris delivers a reliable, secure, and high-performance platform for running Oracle Database, Oracle Applications, and other enterprise applications - a single operating system for the complete datacenter - that is in a class by itself. This paper offers a high-level discussion of the features that separate Oracle Solaris from other enterprise UNIX operating systems, with specific details on optimizations and advantages for increased reliability, scalability, security, and virtualization. Resources that can provide more information are available at the end of the paper.
