It forked from OpenSolaris after the discontinuation of that project by Oracle. The project operates under the umbrella of the Illumos Foundation. OpenIndiana is a robust enterprise operating system, based on the illumos kernel.
It is a new distro project, using the Debian package manager (dpkg/apt-get) to deliver the same binaries on the system as OpenIndiana. It is meant as a collaborative effort between Nexenta, OpenIndiana and others.
Nexenta OS, officially known as the Nexenta Core Platform, was a computer operating system based on OpenSolaris and Ubuntu. Deprecated by Illumian project.
NexentaStor is a proprietary operating system built by Nexenta Systems on top of the Nexenta Core Platform. It is optimized for use in virtualized server environments including NAS, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel applications, and is built around the ZFS file system.
SmartOS incorporates the four most revolutionary OS technologies of the past decade — Zones, ZFS, DTrace and KVM — into a single operating system, providing an arbitrarily observable, highly multi-tenant environment built on a reliable, enterprise-grade storage stack. SmartOS powers SmartDataCenter, Joyent’s commercial cloud.
