OpenSolaris and the Direction of Future Operating Systems
This presentation will discuss the currently available OpenSolaris distribution, which is based on Solaris and provides a new installation, patch, and package system. It offers improved familiarity for developers coming from a Linux environment, with the goal of providing a capable platform for creating applications. Computing requirements are changing and future operating systems (not just OpenSolaris) will have to be capable of handling large memory, high hardware thread counts, and high-performance networking, while adding security, scalable storage management, and virtualization and making new classes of large-scale applications possible.
