Solaris 11.1 have been announced and will be released later this month. It is the first update of Solaris 11 since it release november last year. It contains a few interesting features, I've only list a few, over 200 projects have integrated into this release.

  • New Virtual memory subsystem (VM2.0 or parts of it)
    Scales beyond 100TB, predicts and adapts to page demand, higher performance
  • RSyslog
  • USB3 support
  • Install on UEFI/4K
  • Interactive install on iSCSI
  • FedFS
  • Parallel zone update
  • Must faster LOFI
  • FS statistics per zone
  • Physical to virtual Solaris 10 migration
  • Better support for shared storage
  • Remote Administration Daemon
    Secure zone administration with C, Java, Python API
  • VNIC config in zone XML
  • Faster install and attach
  • ASLR
  • OpenSCAP Security Compliance Checking and reporting tool
  • Audit remote server
  • Data Center Bridging (DCB) IEEE902.1Qaz
  • Link aggregation span across switches
  • VNIC migration
  • Edge Virtual Bridning (EVB) support
  • High performance SSH
  • GRUB2
  • UEFI support
  • Improved hardware support
I asked the Solaris panel on Oracle Openworld about memory set for zones, it is not part of this release but might be implemented now that the initial part of VM2.0 is implemented.
