Map to the Various Oracle Solaris Distributions

The Oracle Solaris OS is available in a number of different distributions. The distribution you choose depends on how you want to use the Oracle Solaris OS.

Solaris 10 Operating System

Use the Solaris 10 OS for mission critical activities and production, such as in a large enterprise.

Solaris subscriptions offer expertise and tools that allow you to focus on your business rather than worry about your underlying infrastructure. For more information about the Solaris 10 OS, including how to download the operating system, see the Oracle Solaris Downloads page.

Oracle Solaris 11 Express Operating System

The Oracle Solaris 11 Express operating system (OS) offers a snapshot of features and capabilities that will be available in Oracle Solaris 11 OS. As such, you can use Oracle Solaris 11 Express to evaluate the platform and prepare for future application and data center migrations to Oracle Solaris 11. Oracle Solaris 11 Express includes, among other things, the GNOME Desktop Environment, GNU tools, and a network-based software management system. The OS also includes state-of-the art features: the Oracle Solaris ZFS file system, Oracle Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace) framework, containers for running applications in protected environments, and advanced network virtualization capabilities.

For detailed information about the Oracle Solaris 11 Express OS, including download and installation instructions, see Getting Started With Oracle Solaris 11 Express.
