In Detail

Oracle Solaris is one of the most widely deployed UNIX-based operating systems in industries today, perfect for critical environments, high performance professionals, and non-stop infrastructures. Fully integrated features such as Oracle Solaris Zones and network virtualization enable rapid provisioning of highly dynamic public and private cloud environments. It has been engineered to work together with the Oracle Database, middleware, and applications, to deliver unique features for increasing performance, streamlining management and automating support for Oracle deployments. Oracle Solaris 11 provides new, flexible, and more secure administration.

This book gives an in-depth coverage on every important feature in the Oracle Solaris 11 operating system. Starting with how to manage the IPS repository, and make a local repository, you will proceed to create your own IPS package. Then you will learn about handling Boot Environments, configuring and managing ZFS frameworks, and ZFS shadowing. You will cruise ahead to implement Zones and review SMF operations, and also configure an Automated Installer, which is part of the new software deployment architecture introduced in Oracle Solaris 11.1.

You will advance through Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Least Privileges. You will then learn how to configure and administer resource manager, and finally you will be introduced to Oracle Solaris Performance Tuning.

From learning to configure Solaris, to making the most of its advanced features, this book enables you to transform your home into an efficient virtual machine environment using VMware Workstation and Virtual Box. Become a skilled professional, and learn all commands, concepts, and tricks directly from an Oracle ACE.


An easy-to-follow guide, packed with hands-on examples of real-world administration tasks that will allow you to administer and master Solaris using the newest version of the Solaris OS.
