June 27 - Sun Microsystems, Inc., (Nasdaq: SUNW), announced it will
release the Solaris(TM) Cluster source code through the HA (High
Availability) Clusters community on the OpenSolaris(TM) site. Sun is
releasing the Open High Availability Cluster in response to interest
and feedback from the OpenSolaris community. For the first time,
developers will be able to participate in the evolution of the software
itself, as well as leverage the open source cluster technology to
develop and support highly available application services.
"Sun is releasing this code to the community to accelerate innovation
around clustered solutions, in a world moving quickly to scale-out
architectures. When applied to Solaris or other technologies, the
Solaris clustering code is a great base to support clustered and HA
systems innovation throughout the community," said Rich Green,
executive vice president, Software, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "The Open HA
Cluster code allows open source developers to use the same Solaris HA
infrastructure that powers enterprises' most mission critical
applications with their open source and network facing applications and
Sun's first contributions are application modules, or agents, which
enable open source or commercially available applications to become
highly available in a cluster environment.
The Open HA Cluster code will be made available in three phases,
beginning at the end of June and continuing over the next 18 months. In
the first phase of Open HA Cluster, Sun will deliver code for most of
the high availability agents offered with the Solaris Cluster product.
Solaris Cluster's high availability agents allow developers to
cluster-enable applications to run as either scalable or failover
services. Sun is also making available the source code for the Solaris
Cluster Automated Test Environment (SCATE) along with agent related
documentation, to assist in testing new agents. The test framework and
first test suite will be contributed at the end of June 2007. Among
these agents are the Solaris(TM) Containers agent, the BEA Weblogic
agent, and PostgreSQL.
Agents written using Open HA Cluster will also run on Solaris Cluster
version 3.2 on the Solaris 10 OS. Subsequent phases of Open HA Cluster
will include delivery of the code for the recently released Solaris(TM)
Cluster Geographic Edition - software that enables multi-site disaster
recovery by managing the availability of application services and data
across geographically dispersed clusters. Later, Sun will release the
code for the core Solaris Cluster infrastructure, again with SCATE
infrastructure tests and documentation.
