  1. Can I upgrade from a FreeBSD Virtual Server to a Solaris Virtual Server?
    Yes, you can upgrade, however, the process is not automatic. In order to upgrade, you will have to order a Solaris Virtual Server, transfer your content, files, configurations, etc., move your domain name, and then terminate your existing Virtual Server.

  2. Where are the Solaris Virtual Servers housed?
    The Solaris Virtual Servers are available in the San Jose, California Data Center or the Dulles, Virginia Data Center.

  3. What are the details of the Solaris Virtual Server?

    Hardware
    SPARC Ultra AXI 440 MHz
    1 GB RAM
    36 GB drives

    Software
    Operating System: Solaris 2.6
    Web Server: Apache 1.3.12
    FTP Server: ProFTP
    Mail Server: sendmail

  4. How many subhosts can the Solaris Virtual Servers support?
    The same subhosting recommendations for the FreeBSD Virtual Servers apply to the Solaris Virtual Servers.

    Solaris Standard: 25 subhosts
    Solaris Pro: 60 subhosts

    Of course the same guidelines and limitations of subhosting also apply to the Solaris Virtual Servers. The Server Administrator is responsible for managing the load created by multiple subhosts.

    Although the Solaris Virtual Server will support subhosts, the intent of this product is to support a single user with more complex web site requirements. If you intend to use your server primarily for subhosts and don't need the advanced features that Solaris provides, we recommend you check out our FreeBSD Virtual Server as well, which is well-suited for multiple subhosts.

  5. What system resources are allocated to each Solaris Virtual Server?

    Solaris Standard
    Disk Space: 400 MB
    Processes: 64 processes (25 httpd processes)

    Solaris Pro
    Disk Space: 800 MB
    Processes: 96 processes (40 httpd processes)

  6. Is there an E-Commerce shopping cart available for the Solaris Virtual Servers?
    There is not currently a shopping cart add-on available directly from Blue Reef. You can, however, purchase a variety of shopping carts that run on the Solaris operating system. We are planning to add Mercantec's SoftCart in February 2001.

  7. Will the Solaris Virtual Servers support Java Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP)?
    We anticipate making servlets and JSPs available via Apache's Jakarta-Tomcat project. These add-ons are scheduled to be available in February 2001.

  8. When will Allaire ColdFusion be available?
    Allaire ColdFusion Enterprise v4.5 is now available on the Solaris Virtual Servers. Resellers can order ColdFusion in the Reseller Backroom. The cost of ColdFusion is $20 per month.

  9. When will Chili!Soft ASPs be available?
    Much like our ColdFusion offering, we will also be providing Chili!Soft ASPs on the Solaris Virtual Servers. Pricing is yet to be determined, but it will be monthly recurring fee of less than $20. Chili!Soft ASPs is planned to be available on the Solaris Virtual Server in February 2001.
