Labeling Zones for Appropriate Access

Rick Ramsey posts an introduction to zones, clustering, and trusted extensions and a link to a paper by Subama Ganguly on building a secure zone cluster with trusted extensions. As Ramsey writes in his introduction, "Oracle Solaris Trusted Zone clusters became available in Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1.

With exclusive access to Exadata Storage Servers, those domains are called "Database" domains. Users can create and use all logical domains as "database domains" or "application domains" or a mix of those, Mandalika writes. The paper talks only about database domains and their creation, configuration and use within each database domain for fine grained control over multiple databases in a SuperCluster environment.

08 Mar 2013 Oracle Releases Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 [30069]
Still Plenty of Life Left in the Old OS

Among the attributes of the recently released Oracle Solaris 10.1.13 are the inclusion of the Oracle Solaris Zones Preflight System Checker; the Oracle Solaris Live Upgrade Preflight Checker; and improved transfer speed rates for SSH, SCP, and SFTP in moderate (50ms) to high latency environments.
