Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

can this be used in a corporate LAB? as a storage server for DEV&TEST, not production.

free to use for; 1.Developing 2.Testing 3.Prototyping 4.Demonstrating your applications

how are the repository, packages supported? meaning can i always connect to Oracle Solaris11 repos for most recent packages?

here is the oracle license terms: "......including but not limited to distribution of the Programs or any use of the Programs for your internal business purposes (other than developing, testing, prototyping and demonstrating your applications) or for any commercial production purposes, you must obtain a valid license permitting such use."

I guess you mean Solaris 11 Express. It is not a beta release but a regular and fully supported release. It is licensed the same way as Solaris 10. If you use the OTN license (free for developing, testing, prototyping, demonstrating your applications), you'll have no support or updates. You need a valid support contract to get them.

by updates i mean access to repository for additional packages, is that available ? –  John-ZFS Feb 18 '11 at 10:13
Sure. These aren't updates but just part of the release. –  jlliagre Feb 18 '11 at 12:32

Solaris 11 Express is fully supported if you have a valid oracle support contract.
