Solaris 11 lets administrators define virtual networks consisting of virtual network interface cards (VNICs), virtual switches,
and "etherstubs", which are simulated NICs used for private (within the Solaris instance) virtual networks.

Over the past few years, I’ve heard end-users asking for more complete solutions. And at events like this, it is apparent that system integrators, hardware vendors, and software developers are consolidating efforts to meet their needs.
Earlier today Adobe revealed some of its next generation professional video and audio products, including the next version of Adobe® Premiere Pro. Basically Adobe is giving users a sneak peek at the new features coming to the next versions of its software. And we’ve decided to give you a sneak peek too, providing a look at how the next version of Premiere Pro performs when accelerated by AMD FirePro™ 3D workstation graphics and OpenCL™ versus Nvidia Quadro workstation graphics and CUDA.

Factories are becoming highly dispersed networks of user interface, control, and data acquisition systems, and the costs associated with deploying, administering, and maintaining those systems can be a big factor in the total cost of ownership for such systems.
Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server
equipped with eight 3.6 GHz SPARC T5 processors
