  • S11 zone as NFS server feature will not be backport to s10
  • Solaris is looking at Ksplice technology
  • Oracle Solaris does not have any plan for KVM
  • Ops-center for S11 will come out next year
  • Oracle Solaris Cluster will support s11 (I did not see any docs or announcement)
  • SPARC super cluster will be GA in Dec/2011, SPARC will run S11 and Cell will run OEL, Oracle Solaris Cluster is optional addon
  • Exalogic run Solaris 11 will support zone
  • There will be many White paper/How To on S11
  • There is no tool for in place “Defragment” of zpool for s10 , if one send/receive zpool it will get “defragement”, S11 handle this better
  • There is no in place upgrade from s10 to s11, but one can move s10 to s10 zone in s11; p2v or v2v
