Solaris 11.4 x86 in Oracle Cloud OCI VM

Oracle currently offers the Oracle Cloud in 40 regions.
One of the many options available is a Solaris 11.4 x86 Virtual Machine.
You can create a VM with up to 1TB RAM and 64 OCPUs (cores).

The creation is very easy and the setup is done in a few minutes.

How to create a VM can be found on the Oracle Solaris Blog

The OS management is currently not available to monitor the Solaris instances.
The commercial JomaSoft VDCF tool is an option to be used for monitoring.

I/O performance depends on the configuration of the block volumes and on
the CPU resources used by the Virtual Machine.
But even with 16 cores I never reached more than 100MB/s
