Publisher Comments:

OpenSolaris is a rapidly evolving operating system with roots in Solaris 10, suitable for deployment on laptops, desktop workstations, storage appliances, and data center servers from the smallest single?purpose systems to the largest enterprise?class systems. The growing OpenSolaris community now has hundreds of thousands of participants and users in government agencies, commercial businesses, and universities, with more than 100 user groups around the world contributing to the use and advancement of OpenSolaris. New releases of OpenSolaris become available every six months, with contributions from both Sun engineers and OpenSolaris community members; this book covers the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release.

Pro OpenSolaris was written to demonstrate that you can host your open source applications and solutions on OpenSolaris, taking advantage of its advanced features such as containers and other forms of virtualization, the ZFS file system, and DTrace. It's assumed that you are already fairly knowledgeable about developing on Linux systems, so the authors give an overview of the similarities and differences between Linux and OpenSolaris, and then present details on how to use the Service Management Facility (SMF), ZFS, zones, and even a bit of DTrace. They also provide pointers to the many project communities associated with new OpenSolaris features. Special focus is given to web development using familiar applications such as Apache, Tomcat, and MySQL, along with the NetBeans IDE, and showing you how to exploit some of OpenSolaris's unique technologies. What you?ll learn Discover the secrets of the ZFS, the most powerful file system ever conceived Explore OpenSolaris AMP (Apache, MySQL, PHP) and GlassFish in the context of Web 2.0 and Linux/Solaris, respectively Familiarize yourself with the new security administration features of OpenSolaris, including changes in DTrace Who this book is for

Linux system administrators and programmers who would like to know what they have missed since Solaris became an open-source operating system.

Book News Annotation:

The readership for this guide includes professional system administrators and developers of open source software environments based on Linux or Solaris. Readers should be familiar with the GNOME-based user environment found on most Linux distributions, as well as basic network tools for such systems. The guide is not a textbook on how to replace Windows with OpenSolaris; it covers only important concepts to help readers get started using OpenSolaris, demonstrated with detailed examples of OpenSolaris technologies. After background on the origins of OpenSolaris and a tour of the OpenSolaris environment, instructions are given for using the Service Management Facility, the ZFS file system, and virtualization. The book concludes with a list of books, blogs and wikis, developer and training resources, user groups, videos, web sites, and white papers. A companion web site contains source code. Foxwell is a system engineer and Christine is a software developer. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
