We are going to continue using the solution in the future and I recommend it to others. I rate Oracle Solaris a seven out of ten.

We are just customers and end-users. We don't have a business relationship with Oracle. I would 100% recommend the solution to other organizations. The solution has been quite reliable and secure. For an enterprise environment, it's a great product. I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

In our company, we don't use Oracle Solaris. As a person, I was employed as a Solaris System Administrator. I'm just a consultant. We don't use Oracle Solaris, because we're not big enough to use the solution ourselves. Overall, I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I would highly recommend Oracle Solaris. It's a stable operating system and it's been around for a long time. If you're planning to have an Oracle Database, the best operating system for the Oracle Database is Oracle Solaris. If anybody is implementing a new solution or a new environment and thinks of putting in Oracle Database, the first option would be Oracle Solaris, then they can look at other OSs like Windows and Linux.

I would suggest that you test it in your environment. Start small and see what it can do, and reach out to me for any help. You'll see it is a solid solution that more people should adopt.

Best choice for professional workers: I personally suggest Oracle Solaris. I'm happy to test the Oracle Solaris 11.4 Beta.

Use deployment tools for automation and avoid doing everything manually. Deployment tools help to avoid errors and create a standardized environment.

I always recommend Solaris because of its robustness, high availability, scalability, virtualization, excellent support, security and very good hardware.
