The Oracle Solaris operating system –
supported on over 1000 x86 and SPARC platforms –
delivers the performance, stability and security your users and customers demand. With thousands of applications available
on Solaris, one OS can span your entire enterprise: the web tier, the data warehouse, and the most demanding technical compute applications. Moving to Solaris 10
is easy, whether you're upgrading from an older Solaris release or migrating from another OS.
Sun and SAP have been working together since 1993 to provide a scalable, reliable, secure, flexible, and open computing infrastructure for customers around the globe. Over time our joint efforts have paid off, helping Sun to consistently achieve many SAP Sales and Distribution standard application benchmark world records
. In 2010, Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle Corporation, which is continuing the cooperation with SAP running Solaris.
