It's SPARC not Sparc
When will you spell it right.
SPARC, not Sparc.
Oracle has duly announced the high availability clustering companion to the new Solaris 11 operating system, and as you might expect from a company that is pitching its own SPARC-based "engineered system" stacks, a whole bunch of third-party software and hardware that was supported with the prior Solaris Cluster 3.3 code has not …

ZFS is Free-as-Beer at a fraternity party... I never heard people complaining that they don't know the formulation for Bud when sucking it down at the frat house for free
Why have no one down voted my question? There are people here that systematically down vote everything I write. I once had a question "Can anyone explain to me why HP must have the permission from Oracle to publish TPC-C benchmarks?" - and also that simple question got lot of down votes.
