Are there any plans for Server and Sync Gateway versions for Solaris OS? Thank you!

I've written a few blog posts earlier about how to build and run Couchbase on SmartOS: http://trondn.blogspot.no/2013/08/running-couchbase-211-on-smartos.html and http://trondn.blogspot.no/2013/08/running-couchbase-under-smf-on-smartos... is the most recent ones. By using those as a base you should be able to get it running on Solaris as well (SmartOS is based on what used to be OpenSolaris).

Hello,

Today this is not something that we have on our roadmap; mainly because we almost never had this request. As you know certifying a new OS is quite expensive for a software editor.

Do you plan to work with a Community Edition or Enterprise Edition (support)

Also this is not because Couchbase company does not provide a Solaris package that you cannot build it yourself from sources. You can find some information here: (linux but you can extend that to Solaris)
http://www.couchbase.com/wiki/display/couchbase/Building+Couchbase+from+...

In addition the SyncGateway is based on Go Language ( http://golang.org ) as far as I know Go language is not yet supported/available on Solaris

Anyway can you a cluster on Linux? this will be the easiest way :)
