  1. Hi All,

    This memo was circulated internally within Oracle (and subsequently
    leaked). Basically, the open source development model has now been
    axed and OpenSolaris is officially now dead. A very sad day indeed.

    Solaris Engineering,

    Today we are announcing a set of decisions regarding the path to
    Solaris 11, and answering key pending questions on open source, open
    development, software and binary licenses, and how developers and
    early adopters will be able to use Solaris 11 technology before its
    release in 2011.

    As you all know, the term “OpenSolaris” has been used colloquially to
    refer to any or all of a collection of source code, a development
    model, a web site, a logo, a binary release, a source license, a
    community, and many other related things. So it’s taken a while to go
    over each issue from an organizational and business perspective, and
    align on the correct next step. Therefore, please take the time to
    read all of the detail here carefully. We’ll discuss our strategy
    first, and then the decisions and changes to our policies and
    processes that implement that strategy.

    Solaris Strategy

    Solaris is the #1 Enterprise Operating System. We have the leading
    share of business applications on Solaris today, including both SPARC
    and x64. We have more than twice the application base of AIX and HP-UX
    combined. We have a brand that stands for innovation, quality,
    security, and trust, built on our 20-year investment in Solaris
    operating system engineering.

    >From a business perspective, the purpose of our investment in Solaris
    engineering is to drive our overall server business, including both
    SPARC and x64, and to drive business advantages resulting from
    integration of multiple components in the Oracle portfolio. This
    includes combining our servers with our storage, our servers with our
    switches, Oracle applications with Solaris, and the effectiveness of
    the service experience resulting from these combinations. All
    together, Solaris drives aggregate business measured in many billions
    of dollars, with significant growth potential.

    We are increasing investment in Solaris, including hiring operating
    system expertise from throughout the industry, as a sign of our
    commitment to these goals. Solaris is not something we outsource to
    others, it is not the assembly of someone else’s technology, and it is
    not a sustaining-only product. We expect the top operating systems
    engineers in the industry, i.e. all of you, to be creating and
    delivering innovations that continue to make Solaris unique,
    differentiated, and valuable to our customers, and a unique asset of
    our business.

    Solaris must stand alone as a best-of-breed technology for Oracle’s
    enterprise customers. We want all of them to think “If this has to
    work, then it runs on Solaris.” That’s the Solaris brand. That is
    where our scalability to more than a few sockets of CPU and gigabytes
    of DRAM matters. That is why we reliably deliver millions of IOPS of
    storage, networking, and Infiniband. That is why we have unique
    properties around file and data management, security and namespace
    isolation, fault management, and observability. And we also want our
    customers to know that Solaris is and continues to be a source of new
    ideas and new technologies– ones that simplify their business and
    optimize their applications. That’s what made Solaris 10 the most
    innovative operating system release ever. And that is the same focus
    that will drive a new set of innovations in Solaris 11.

    For Solaris to stand alone as the best-of-breed operating system in
    Oracle’s complete and open portfolio, it must run well on other server
    hardware and execute everyone’s applications, while delivering unique
    optimizations for our hardware and our applications. That is the
    central value proposition of Oracle’s complete, open, and integrated
    strategy. And these are complementary and not contradictory goals that
    we will achieve through proper design and engineering.

    The growth opportunity for Solaris has never been greater. As one
    example, Solaris is used by about 40% of Oracle’s enterprise
    customers, which means we have a 60% growth opportunity in our top
    customers alone. In absolute numbers, there are 130,000 Oracle
    customers in North America alone who don’t use our servers and storage
    yet, and a global customer base of 350,000 (the prior Sun base was
    ~35,000). That’s a huge opportunity we can go attack as a combined
    company that will increase Solaris adoption and the overall Hardware
    server revenue. Our success will also increase the amount of effort
    ISVs exert optimizing their applications for Solaris.

    We will continue to grow a vibrant developer and system administrator
    community for Solaris. Delivery of binary releases, delivery of APIs
    in source or binary form, delivery of open source code, delivery of
    technical documentation, and engineering of upstream contributions to
    common industry technologies (such as Apache, Perl, OFED, and many,
    many others) will be part of that activity. But we will also make
    specific decisions about why and when we do those things, following
    two core principles: (1) We can’t do everything. The limiting factor
    is our engineering bandwidth measured in people and time. So we have
    to ensure our top priority is driving delivery of the #1 Enterprise
    Operating System, Solaris 11, to grow our systems business; and (2) We
    want the adoption of our technology and intellectual property to
    accelerate our overall goals, yet not permit competitors to derive
    business advantage (or FUD) from our innovations before we do.

    We are using our investment in core Solaris innovation and engineering
    to drive multiple businesses, through multiple product lines. This
    already includes our Solaris operating system for Enterprise, and our
    ZFS Storage product line, and will soon include other Oracle products.
    This strategy is all about creating more value from a set of common
    software investments: it makes everything you do more
    valuable and used by more people worldwide. It also means you as an
    individual engineer or manager have an even greater responsibility to
    understand the broader business and technical contexts in which your
    engineering is deployed.

    Solaris Decisions

    We will continue to use the CDDL license statement in nearly all
    Solaris source code files. We will not remove the CDDL from any files
    in Solaris to which it already applies, and new source code files that
    are created will follow the current policy regarding applying the CDDL
    (simply, that usr/src files will have the CDDL, and the very small
    minority of files in usr/closed might not have it). Use of other open
    licenses in non-ON consolidations (e.g. GPL in the Desktop area) will
    also continue. As before, requests to change the license associated
    with source code are case-by-case decisions.

    We will distribute updates to approved CDDL or other open source-
    licensed code following full releases of our enterprise Solaris
    operating system. In this manner, new technology innovations will
    show up in our releases before anywhere else. We will no longer
    distribute source code for the entirety of the Solaris operating
    system in real-time while it is developed, on a nightly basis.

    Anyone who is consuming Solaris code using the CDDL, whether in pieces
    or as a part of the OpenSolaris source distribution or a derivative
    thereof, would therefore be able to consume any updates we release at
    that time, under the terms of the CDDL, LGPL, or whatever license

    We will have a technology partner program to permit our industry
    partners full access to the in-development Solaris source code through
    the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). This will include both early
    access to code and binaries, as well as contributions to us where that
    is appropriate. All such partnerships will be evaluated on a
    case-by-case basis, but certainly our core, existing technology
    partnerships, such as the one with Intel, are examples of valued

    We will encourage and listen to any and all license requests for
    Solaris technology, either in part or in whole. All such requests will
    be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but we believe there are
    many complementary areas where new partnership opportunities exist to
    expand use of our IP.

    We will continue active open development, including upstream
    contributions, in specific areas that accelerate our overall Solaris
    goals. Examples include our activities around Gnome and X11, IPS
    packaging, and our work to optimize ecosystems like Apache, OpenSSL,
    and Perl on Solaris.

    We will deliver technical design information, in the form of
    documentation, design documents, and source code descriptions, through
    our OTN presence for Solaris. We will no longer post advance
    technical descriptions of every single ARC case by default, indicating
    what technical innovations might be present in future Solaris
    releases. We can at any time make a specific decision to post advance
    technical information for any project, when it serves a particular
    useful need to do so.

    We will have a Solaris 11 binary distribution, called Solaris 11
    Express, that will have a free developer RTU license, and an optional
    support plan. Solaris 11 Express will debut by the end of this
    calendar year, and we will issue updates to it, leading to the full
    release of Solaris 11 in 2011.

    All of Oracle’s efforts on binary distributions of Solaris technology
    will be focused on Solaris 11. We will not release any other binary
    distributions, such as nightly or bi-weekly builds of Solaris
    binaries, or an OpenSolaris 2010.05 or later distribution. We will
    determine a simple, cost-effective means of getting enterprise users
    of prior OpenSolaris binary releases to migrate to S11 Express.

    We will have a Solaris 11 Platinum Customer Program, including direct
    engineering involvement and feedback, for customers using our Solaris
    11 technology. We will be asking all of you to participate in this
    endeavor, bringing with us the benefit of previous Sun Platinum
    programs, while utilizing the much larger megaphone that is available
    to us now as a combined company.

    We look forward to everyone’s continued work on Solaris 11. Our goal
    is simply to make it the best and most important release of Solaris

  3. Hi dvd,

    u welcome, yang aku tahu command2 tu tak wujud dalam debian based distro. tapi entah la aku dah lama tak sentuh debian based. dalam debian setahu aku command yg sama fungsi dgn command aku post tadi, ialah /etc/init.d/[nama-service] start/stop dan update-rc.d *** default/remove .

  4. hi dvd.

    command di bawah akan stop service yang guna port 25 dan 631 secara sementara,
    service cups stop
    service sendmail stop

    dan command di bawah ialah untuk stop kan service tu secara tetap di next power cycle
    chkconfig sendmail off
    chkconfig cups off

    pakai cli lagi bagus, senang

    kenapa lak? kat OSDC ada linuxchix .. kat mambang. sorang tu jer ada chix .. buat penyejuk hati.

    itu dia abang mumtazah sudah datang. btw kalau buleh sejuk kan hati ok la.

  7. saya sering access ke computer saya di rumah dari office contohnya mengambil dan menyimpan file/data melalui FTP dan sebagainya buat masa sekarang saya mengunakan ISP TMNET dan mengunakan package 4mbps dari streamyx. niat di hati ingin mencuba HSBB jadi soalan saya ialah "buleh ke saya access computer saya di rumah jika mengunakan HSBB?" tq

    sekadar cadangan, saya ingin mengadakan satu simple meetups/perjumpaan/lepak minum2 untuk kaki2 OSS, tak kira expert ke fans ke apa2 je la..
    dah lama kita dok huha2 dalam thread, tiba masa jumpa dan duduk semeja, sama2..
    mmg dulu2 dah ada cadang, dalam thread kelab linux putera:

    tapi ni lebih kepada santai relaks, dan hapi2.. bukan mcm kelab ke apa la pun...

    cadangkan tpt:


    sapa berminat?

    aku follow, tak kisah mana2 janji hari jumaat atau sabtu.

  9. post dah lama tp lantak la nak reply gak.

    dari pengalaman aku kalau linux HA cluster aku lebih suka redhat cluster suite berbanding dgn yang lain untuk tujuan HA cluster. kalau nak tgk demo camner redhat cluster suite ni perform , buleh la klik [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQGxBlpd05U"]sini[/url] . ni aku guna linux centos , free tp kalau nak enterprise buleh la beli lesen dari redhat dan guna redhat enterprise linux
