Have you heard of Solaris? Probably not. In the market, Mac and Windows systems are the most commonly seen operating system. However, the Solaris OS, also known as SunOS, is usually used in Sun Workstation. And in the post, you can learn everything about Solaris and the method to format a Solaris hard drive.
Solaris is a UNIX operating system developed by Sun Microsystems, as proprietary software. But nowadays, Solaris is owned by Oracle, which acquired Sun Microsystems.
In the early days, SunOS is designed only for Sun workstations. With the launch of OpenSolaris, it begins its tour as a desktop. But until now, it is still not universal due to the limited applications and device drives. Oracle is now aiming to solve the problem. Once it is settled, its popularity will grow accordingly.
The following are three main points of Oracle Solaris OS:
Now you must have a concept of Solaris OS. And I will go on to talk about the history of Solaris.
Solaris is a UNIX System. Before discussing the History of Solaris OS you need to have a general idea of UNIX OS.
Created in 1965, UNIX is an implementation of an idea, rather than an operating system. It is not developed by a single company with a large marketing organization as "Microsoft Windows". The UNIX is created by a group of mathematicians and computer scientists, who are employed by the research center-Bell Laboratories.
In 1975, Bill Joy and Chuck Haley got involved with version 6 of UNIX. And they played an important role in the UNIX system development in Berkeley. Bill Joy integrated UNIX distribution and called it the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD).
In 1979, clean version 7 of UNIX is launched.
In early 1980, Bill Joy Left Berkeley became a co-founder of Sun Microsystems based on BSD, which is called SunOS
In 1993, the Sun announced the SunOS 4.1.4 version.
In 1995, the Sun introduces Java, the first universal platform.
In 1996, Sun's SRV4 implementation was created, which is also referred to as SunOS 5.x.
2001 till today, for user experience, Solaris was moving its implementations from UNIX to SRV4-compliant. SVR4 dominates UNIX. Solaris 11 is the latest version.
Oracle Solaris is the most popular UNIX system. And many people may have questions about how to format an Oracle Solaris drive. In the next part, I will show you step-by-step instructions.
Step 1 Become an Administrator
Step 2 Arouse the "Format" Interface.
Step 3 Input Disk Number
Step 4 Input "Format" to confirm the command
Step 5 Type "Yes" in the "Format Prompt"
Step 6 Verify Solaris Disk Format
Step 7 Leave the "Format Interface"
