Sun's Cloud Computing Portfolio
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Update: Sun has expanded its Cloud Computing portfolio with the recent acquisition of Qlayer, a cloud computing company that automates the deployment and management of both public and private clouds.  The Q-layer organization, based in Belgium, is now part of Sun's Cloud Computing business unit which develops and integrates cloud computing technologies, architectures and services.

Cloud computing is about managing petascale data. Sun's server and storage systems can radically improve the data-intensive computing emerging in the cloud. Some clouds are closed platforms that lock you in. Sun's open source philosophy and Java principles form the core of a strategy that provides

Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

SmugMug , a photos and videos publishing site, goes into Production on Open Solaris + MySQL + ZFS. Check out this story on why a Linux geek decided to move his site from Linux To Open Solaris.

Don MacAskill, chief geek and CEO of SmugMug says"  ZFS is the most amazing filesystem I’ve ever come across. Integrated volume management. Copy-on-write. Transactional. End-to-end data integrity. On-the-fly corruption detection and repair. Robust checksums. No RAID-5 write hole. Snapshots. Clones (writable snapshots). Dynamic striping. Open source software.

Cool Stack Roadmap
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We released Cool Stack 1.3.1 recently. This was the last release that was built to work on releases as old as Solaris 10 01/06 (Update 1). Going forward, future versions of the stack will only be supported on newer Solaris 10 updates. So I'd like to urge everyone who is running older releases to please schedule their systems for upgrade. We highly recommend that you upgrade to at least Solaris 10 01/08 (Update 5) as it has many performance, security and other fixes.

For some time now, we've had two different stacks for Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris - Cool Stack for Solaris 10 and Web Stack for OpenSolaris. We cannot continue to sustain this model  where we have two different source bases with slightly

Cool Stack 1.3 is here
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It's finally here. Before you download the release, please do read the documentation. It's over a month late, but hopefully the features will compensate for the delay.
Almost every single component in the stack has been upgraded. Two new packages, CSKpython and CSKnginx have been added. And yes - the python package does include mod_python too.
You can read about the full list of changes in the Changelog.

Significant changes have been made to the ruby package. In addition to the upgrade to ruby1.8.6p114, we include a number of gems, notably mysql, postgres and mongrel. It should also be easy to install any

Where is 1.3?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I know many of you may be wondering why Cool Stack 1.3 isn't out yet, so I thought I'd post an update on where we are with the release. When I first started talking about this, I was hoping to get the release out in early May. But several things have colluded to cause a delay.

  • We took on a lot for this release. Although just looking at the proposal, it may seem like a simple matter to just update the versions of the various components, underneath the hood, we decided to do a lot more streamlining of the build and packaging process.  Since so many version updates were involved, that also meant more legal approvals.
  • We have a more formal QA process for this release (and for future releases). The good news is that this means we will have a more quality release, but the bad news is that it now takes more time as

    Time for next Cool Stack release
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    It's been close to 4 months since we released Cool Stack 1.2, so it's time to start thinking about the next release. Here's what we have planned so far and as always I'm looking for feedback from current and future users on what you'd like to see. Needless to say, that all currently known bugs will be fixed and the current patches will be rolled into the release. However, if you don't tell us about the problems you've run into, we won't be able to fix them. So, once again I'd like to encourage people to please post your problem/issue/tips etc. on the forum.

    Here's a list of stuff we're currently looking at for Cool Stack 1.3 :

    ComponentVersion in Cool Stack 1.3
    Version in Coolstack 1.2
    Apache 2.2.8 2.2.6
    Tomcat 5.5.26 5.5.23

    PHP dtrace extension for Cool Stack 1.2
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We have fixed the issue with the PHP dtrace extension not working in Cool Stack 1.2. As I mentioned in my announcement post, we had already identified the issue but didn't have time to fix it before the release. The issue was that /usr/ccs/bin/ld was being used to do the linking but this doesn't work for dtrace as some initialization code needs to be called from the .init section and this is not setup correctly if we don't use 'cc' to do the linking (rather than 'ld'). 

    So a simple addition to the configure line:
    LD="cc"

    did the trick.

    We now have two files : dtrace_1.2_sparc.so and dtrace_1.2_x86.so posted.

    Cool Stack 1.2 Released
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Finally, it's here. We missed our October 31 deadline, but hopefully that won't matter when you see the contents of the release.

    Short summary of changes in the 1.2 release.

    You can download the new packages from the Sun Download Center.

    Some caveats to be aware of :

    • These packages will over-write Cool Stack 1.1 packages that you may already have installed. All packages continue to install in /opt/coolstack but some of the package names have been changed. Thus, pkgadd(1M) will not know that the new CSKapache2 package will install in /opt/coolstack/apache2 and over-write the contents from a previous Cool Stack 1.1 installation of CSKamp. So, please do save your current installation.

    Sun recently announced the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 and T5220 and Sun Blade T6320 systems based on the UltraSPARC T2 processor.  You can find lots of information on the various features and functionality provided by these servers.

    One other cool feature is that these systems ship with Cool Stack pre-loaded. The Cool Stack 1.1 packages are available in /var/spool/pkg. You can install the ones you want using the pkgadd(1M) command as follows :

    root@wgs40-82 # cd /var/spool/pkg
    root@wgs40-82 # ls
    CSKampSrc_sparc.pkg        CSKphplibs_sparc.pkg
