The system, built on 360 64-bit x86 processor cores, is interconnected with an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with Oracle WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux operating system software.

Oracle Solaris, Linux, and OpenSolaris

Some people have been speculating rather wildly about the fates of both OpenSolaris and Oracle's Linux support now that the company is lining up solidly behind SPARC/Solaris. The nay prayers are all wrong here: support for both will get stronger, not weaker, as Oracle responds to its markets.

What's wrong at OpenSolaris

What's wrong with Sun's "project Indiana" beyond the authoritarian way it was pushed through? Basicaly, I see making Solaris more Linux-like as dragging Solaris down market when the same effort could have made a far more positive contribution by helping drag Linux up.

My 2007 predictions - wrong, wrong, and wrong

One of my predictions last year was that the Solaris development community would be widely seen as bigger and more vibrant than the Linux one by the end of this year. It didn't happen - but I don't understand what's happening: Solaris for x86 is almost a stealth movement among developers - nearly everybody's playing, hardly anyone's talking. Why?

Cost comparison: Solaris/SPARC vs Linux/x86

Compare the cost of "Linux" -meaning gnu/linux on x86 - to the cost of Unix -meaning Solaris on ultraSPARC- and you get a surprise: "Unix" is cheaper provided you need enough capacity to get to the UltraSPARC entry point.
