Oracle Solaris Review

It's solid in terms of security.

Valuable Features

It's solid in terms of security; secured systems.

Room for Improvement

In terms of monitoring, they have quite a bit right now, but it could be a little bit better, especially with all of the virtualized resources.

Use of Solution

I have been using the database for 15 years.

Stability Issues

It has been stable, pretty much.

Down time has not been because of the OS.

Scalability Issues

Under load, it has scaled well.

It will definitely meet our needs going into the future.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is pretty good. Sun used to support it, and now it’s Oracle. We use technical support mostly for the database, and now both the software, the OS, as well as the hardware, are all from the same vendor.

Previous Solutions

The company has had it for, pretty much, since I joined the company.

Initial Setup

The upgrades are pretty straightforward, now-a-days. You can do live upgrades and things like that pretty well.

Other Advice

I definitely recommend it.

When I’m looking at vendors to work with, I definitely look for one with a good reputation of being reliable because that provides a solid foundation for the many components that will run on it. It's definitely not like the sort of software that you can get from some new start-up, which might provide more features and value. The product and the vendor have to be proven.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
