For over 25 years, Oracle Solaris engineering has been working closely with Oracle Database engineers to ensure that Oracle Database achieves its full potential when running on Oracle Solaris. This included providing mission-critical reliability while scaling to the largest databases in the world. Oracle Solaris, one of two operating system options for Oracle Exadata, is a key building block that provides mission-critical reliability, performance, and security that are essential for database consolidation.
