A proprietary software, Solaris is now under Oracle after the acquisition of Sun Microsystems. The Oracle Solaris is known for its scalability on SPARC systems and has support for x86-64 workstations. Oracle Solaris is now considered as the most widely deployed UNIX operating system that provides reliability, performance, and enterprise-class security for mission-critical applications.
