Illumos begins diverging from OpenSolaris

Filed under
OS

According to Garret D'Amore, Illumos project leader, the recently launched derivative is beginning to diverge from OpenSolaris.

D'Amore has noted in his blog that he believes the last commit to Oracle's public repository for ON, the core of OpenSolaris, has been made. According to a leaked memo revealed earlier this week, Oracle are ceasing open development of Solaris and will discontinue OpenSolaris, migrating users to Solaris Express 11.

D'Amore says"from here on out, Illumos and Oracle Solaris diverge" and that he is "very excited" at this move.

Ubuntu Images for Oracle

  • Certified Ubuntu Images available on Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service
    Certified Ubuntu images are now available in the Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services, providing developers with compute options ranging from single to 16 OCPU virtual machines (VMs) to high-performance, dedicated bare metal compute instances. This is in addition to the image already offered on Oracle Compute Cloud Service and maintains the ability for enterprises to add Canonical-backed Ubuntu Advantage Support and Systems Management. Oracle and Canonical customers now have access to the latest Ubuntu features, compliance accreditations and security updates.
  • Canonical's Certified Ubuntu Images Land in Oracle's Bare Metal Cloud Service
    Canonical announced the official availability of Certified Ubuntu images in Oracle's Bare Metal Cloud Services, which accompany the images that the company already provides in the Oracle Compute Cloud Service. Canonical's Certified Ubuntu images in Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services are a great addition because they promise to provide developers with dedicated, high-performance bare-metal compute instances, as well as virtual machines with up to 16 Oracle Compute Unit (OCPU). They also add the ability for Oracle's enterprise customers to access the latest and greatest Ubuntu features.
