The only Oracle Press guide to Oracle Solaris 11
Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration: The Complete Reference explains the sophisticated capabilities of Oracle Solaris 11 and its vast updates. The book details installation, process and device management, access control and security, networking, virtualization, CSS, services, directories, and applications. It explains the significantly updated architecture of the networking stack, which now offers a simplified, unified, and enhanced interoperability and observability of the network interfaces. Other key features and important updates are addressed, including: new optimizations for enterprise-level scalability; built-in network virtualization; reductions in planned and unplanned system downtime; and on-disk ZFS encryption for achieving the highest levels of data center security.
The primary focus of this Oracle Press guide is on the tasks and tools critical to the system administrator; it also provides a solid treatment of Web tools and explains the most relevant open source development tools for those administrators who also handle development tasks. The book is organized to get you up and running as efficiently as possible.
