Oracle Solaris 10/11.x Integration

Hello everyone,
I’m starting to research ways to automate and manage my server infrastructure using a single tool, and voala, I found manageiq.

I have several oracle solaris 10 / 11.x servers with oracle sparc hardware architecture.

Is it possible to automate the provisioning of my infrastructure using manageiq? has anyone done this before? I’m not looking for full compatibility.

Is it possible to create a custom provider using other automation tools like ansible and terraform? does anyone do that?

Not officially, as the app is designed for Linux, but you could try it.

I was under the impression that Solaris was basically dead after its engineers were let go a few years ago, with stuff like IllumOS popping up as an effort to keep it going. Is that not the case?
