Did you ever wish you could get the industrial strength power of UNIX/RISC with the flexibility of cloud computing? Well, now you can! With recent advances from Oracle it's possible to build an incredibly high-performance, flexible, available virtualized infrastructure based on Solaris and SPARC. Here's the recipe!
Based on following these best practices, you'll be able to construct a dynamic, virtualized infrastructure that allows for:
You should download this paper and check it out. Even if you aren't planning on buying all new hardware, and instead want to transform some existing gear into a dynamic virtualized environment then this paper will give you concrete info on what to do and the trade-offs you'll make.
Have fun getting started on your journey to build a SPARC cloud!
