OmniOS Wants To Fill The OpenSolaris Void

Open source software operating system has improved ZFS support and new tools

Web app development company OmniTI has released a new version of the OmniOS open source operating system for application developers. With a focus on infrastructure level architecture, OmniOS is something of a continuation of the OpenSolaris legacy; i.e., after Oracle's discontinuation of open development with Solaris, we are now invited to regard OmniOS as an OS that builds upon Illumos to now offer a complete open alternative to Oracle Solaris 11.

NOTE: Illumos is a free and open source operating system with roots in UNIX and is itself an open source fork of Sun's OpenSolaris.
