Giving up on Linux and adopting Solaris for 'serious' server applications

ASGR71Jul 20 2020 — edited Sep 24 2020

Hi Guys and Gals,

I've just about had it with all Linux distros with inconsistencies and

competing technologies that nothing gets implemented completely.

Henceforth, I'm adopting Solaris as the operating system for my

Oracle installation. It's only a small installation for learning and

coding on a Dell 3060.

I have several questions about the installation of the operating


1) Does / How-does - Solaris manage SSD drives. I'm guessing

it's advanced enough to handle this technology but I've not been

able to find any documentation regarding this?

2) Trim / Discard - Assuming Solaris runs on SSD's, does Solaris

handle the equivalant of the discard/trim function automatically or

is it a case of manually launching the command as in Linux via a

cron job?

3) I've read about UFS and ZFS and I don't think I have the resources

or hardware setup to implement ZFS. Does Solaris still support UFS?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank in advance.
