XStreamOS: An Illumos Kernel Based Operating System

Filed under

Interviews

Being a Technical Writer involves a lot of reading and research of new and emerging technologies. And one project that recently came to my attention through my email inbox was an Illumos kernel based Unix operating system called XStreamOS.

The project is led by Garbriele Bulfon through his company, Sonicle, a company which he co-founded with business partner Raffaele Fullone. Sonicle specializes in Infrastructure, Cloud and Web Development technologies. Gabriele gave me a brief run-down of what Sonicle is all about:

Gabriele: “At Sonicle, we decided to make our own operating system based on the Illumos kernel after Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle. We had years of delivering solutions to our clients around Solaris 8, 9 and 10. Now, we can deliver more through our own operating system featuring ZFS. And XStreamOS is the basic component of our other products, such as XStream Server and XStream Storage, already deployed and running at our customers offices as Enterprise solutions.”
