30 Jul 2015 Live storage migration for kernel zones [44704]
By Mike Gerdts

Mike Gerdts writes, "From time to time every sysadmin realizes that something that is consuming a bunch of storage is sitting in the wrong place. This could be because of a surprise conversion of proof of concept into proof of production or something more positive like ripping out old crusty storage for a nice new Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance. When you use kernel zones with Solaris 11.3, storage migration gets a lot easier..."

The integration will allow enterprise customers to use the Docker open platform to easily distribute applications built and deployed in Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris' built-in virtualization technology.

16 Jul 2015 Solaris 11.3 zones blog entries [44436]
By Mike Gerdts

Mike Gerdts writes, "When I was interviewing with the zones team a number of years ago, I was told that Zones were the peanut butter that was spread throughout the operating system. I'm not so sure peanut butter is exactly the analogy that I'd go for... perhaps something a bit more viscous and hip like Sriracha sauce. Whatever the analogy, there's a lot of innovation related to zones throughout Solaris by people that don't work on the zones team.

  • Solaris 11.3 extends Verified Boot functionality to Kernel Zones
