Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

Is there another way of full hardware virtualization on Solaris?


Solaris Logical Domains for the Sparc platform is a fully virtualized environment. This has been renamed under the umbrella of Oracle VM and aligned with the xen effort for x86. Resources are allocated from a VMM or two (service, control domains). The OS that is installed does not require modification and includes both Solaris sparc and Linux for sparc.
