Big data and cloud are sure taking their place now and will stay in future so this is never on the bad side to learn.
Taking on solaris in my opinion is a bit old school also there are more than enough system in use, just I doubt that a lot new system get deployed. Also this is just guessing I never digged into solars or how much market share there is. Just taken from the usual jobs lists.

Can't take the decision off of you also 2 weeks is some time especially there is at least one weekend to think about and make a decision. Maybe you could gather some info on what software are in use. Or maybe see if you have to only maintaine a already running system or setting up a new one. If you want to learn new stuff I guess only maintaining could get you bored. But if it also goes with extending the system that would be a plus.

Maybe you can go by this pro and cons list. And then see which one "scores" better.

I wouldn't use CMMI as the only metric for rating the worthiness of a company. Someone with a high rating doesn't necessarily mean they're good, just that the rubber stampers and paper pushers are busy.

I don't know how the IT sector is in India, but I would look at how each individual business operates. Do they treat their employees well? Is there a pay increase for good performance? What benefits does the company provide? How many hours do their employees work a week? Does the job require 24/7 support? Does the company have a high turnover rate? You're going to be spending a significant chunk of your day working, so it's not going to do you any good if the work environment sucks.

Big Data. You can have big data without the Cloud. Big Data is a concept and tool that won't go away. Cloud is simply the internet as a base of operations.

Both of which are buzz words which mean little in an operational context.
