Oracle has introduced Oracle Solaris 11.2, a cloud platform that blends virtualisation, software-defined networking (SDN) and a full OpenStack distribution.

Oracle argues that the combination of an enterprise-class operating system and other components creates a "highly efficient, compliant, secure, open and affordable" software platform for cloud computing.

With deep integration among Oracle Database, Java and Oracle Applications, Solaris 11.2 is aimed at enhancing reliability, performance, efficiency and security in deployed systems.

"Oracle's relentless innovation offers customers the strongest cloud product portfolio in the industry. By engineering the OS, the virtualisation, SDN and OpenStack together, Oracle Solaris 11.2 provides a complete cloud solution," said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems, Oracle.

"It's a complete platform for simple, efficient, secure, compliant and open enterprise cloud deployments that can help customers accelerate their businesses and capitalize on the potential of cloud computing while reducing cost."
