US Government Agency Chooses PDF Studio on Solaris!

Leila Caison, Qoppa Software's Director of Product comments ‚??PDF Studio is compelling to big government agencies running on Linux and Unix systems. It has a low price of entry, yet it is fully featured and avoids the JavaScript vulnerabilities suffered by some competitors. Recently, another European research agency running Linux purchased a large number of licenses.‚?Ě

Qoppa Software's PDF tools are chosen by governments because they run across all major operating systems,including Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Oracle Reintroduces Solaris Support for non-Oracle x86 Hardware

What is different from before the merger is that Oracle intends to offer support directly to all users. In the past for example, other companies would have provided front-line support. But now Oracle will take on that role and thus keep a direct relationship with all non Sun hardware x86 Solaris customers as a result.

Any x86 server can apply for Solaris certification. If the server isn‚??t already certified on the Oracle Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility List, the certification process involves the client downloading and running the Hardware Certification Test Suite (HCTS)...

Sun, IBM Ink Solaris Distribution Agreement for Servers

While Sun has been testing and certifying that Solaris 10 will run on various X86 and X64 servers from IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, and others, are finding that having Sun or the OpenSolaris community attest to the usability of Solaris on a particular box is not the same thing as having the maker of that box actually sell the operating system on the machine and guarantee that the drivers all work. Such a guarantee requires an official reseller agreement as well as some engineering, and this is precisely what IBM has signed up for with Sun.

Specifically, IBM will officially support Solaris 10 on its System x3650 (two-socket Xeon), x3755 (four-socket Opteron), and x3850 (four-socket and higher Xeon MP) rack-mounted servers. IBM is also selling and supporting Solaris 10 on its BladeCenter HS21 (Xeon-based) and LS41 (Opteron-based) blade servers; the HS21 is a two-socket Xeon blade, while the LS41 is the result of linking two two-socket Opteron blades together to create a four-socket blade.
