CloudSigma announces Oracle Solaris-Based IaaS

CloudSigma announces Oracle Solaris-Based IaaS 

The company says Oracle Solaris was engineered specifically for cloud environments and supports over 11,000 enterprise apps. CloudSigma believes that its service can benefit customers with Oracle Solaris’ enhanced security and performance in a public cloud.

“We’ve been excited to see the recent developments in the Oracle Solaris offering and have worked closely with Oracle to demonstrate the unique power of this platform for the enterprise,” said Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CEO, in a press release. “This new service will allow customers to engage with a SPARC – Oracle Solaris environment in new ways, as well as bring the benefits of the cloud paradigm to existing Oracle Solaris based workloads. We are fully committed to supporting the full range of customer computing requirements in the cloud and Oracle Solaris is an important part of that.”

The CloudSigma cloud represents a neutral platform for a testing and production environments. Customers can deploy x64/x86 compatible operating systems and drive powerful SPARC – Oracle Solaris-based environments.

“The recent release of Oracle Solaris 11.2 has turned it into a full cloud platform with OS, virtualization and Software Defined Networking (SDN) capabilities as well as a full distribution of OpenStack – all in one product,” explained Markus Flierl, VP, Solaris Development at Oracle, in a press release. “Oracle Solaris offers customers industry leading performance, efficiency, security and compliance. We are excited to see the Oracle Solaris ecosystem grow through partners like CloudSigma.”

Customers can choose the kernel version they wish to run with CloudSigma for Solaris Kernel Zones and keep their public cloud Oracle Solaris environment and each virtual machine can be freely sized to be tuned to the customer use case.

“Enterprise customers care not only about feature sets, but also about efficient environment management, particularly at scale,” Jenkins continued. “That’s why we’ve worked hard to integrate our new Oracle Solaris-based offering into our API and WebApp for a virtually seamless experience. We can offer 100 percent automation via our API of all cloud management features, making it ideal for a wide range of use cases, including very dynamic environments. We are especially interested to see how customers expand their Oracle Solaris usage to embrace the elasticity and automation we can offer them.”

The IaaS offering with Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones is currently in closed beta and will be launched into full production across CloudSigma locations like San Jose, Washington DC and Miami.
