20 Aug 2014 Oracle Solaris 11.2's Virtual components [37918]
By Lingeswaran Rangasamy

Lingeswaran writes, "What are the virtual components available in Oracle Solaris 11.2? Since Oracle Solaris 11.2 supports openstack (for cloud deployment), what are the core components have been virtualized?

In this article, we will see the virtual components and how it will be useful in real life. For an example, if you want to provision 10 local zones with exclusive IP, you need 11 network interface cards on the system. (1 NIC for global zone). But normally, you won't get that many NIC on the physical server and also the cost matters. In this case, if you virtualize the network, you will get N-number of virtual NICS and you can create N-number of zones with exclusive IP setup..."

13 Aug 2014 Support for Kernel Zones with the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.2 Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones [37797]
By T.F.

T.F. writes, "The Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones is enhanced to support Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones (also called solaris-kz branded zones) with Oracle Solaris 11.2.

This data service provides high availability for Oracle Solaris Zones through three components in a failover or multi-master configuration:

  • sczbt: The orderly booting, shutdown and fault monitoring of an Oracle Solaris zone.
  • sczsh: The orderly startup, shutdown and fault monitoring of an application within the Oracle Solaris zone (managed by sczbt), using scripts or commands.
  • sczsmf: The orderly startup, shutdown and fault monitoring of an Oracle Solaris Service Management Facility (SMF) service within the Oracle Solaris zone managed by sczbt.

With Oralce Solaris Cluster 4.0 and 4.1 the sczbt component does support cold migration (boot and shutdown) of solaris and solaris10 branded zones..."

11 Aug 2014 How to configure and install kernel zone on Solaris 11.2 [37795]
By Lingeswaran Rangasamy

"In Oracle Solaris 11.2,we have new type of zone called kernel zone. This zone is almost similar to SPARC VM (LDOM) guests which can run on its own patch level and completely isolated from global zone. These kernel branded zones are support on both SPARC & X86 hardwares. But processors should support virtulization technology(VT) .In X86 hardwares, you have to enable this option in system BIOS,if your hardware is upported for VT. Let's see how we can configure and install kernel zones on Solaris 11.2..."

26 May 2014 Security Access Control With Solaris Virtualization [36634]
By Thierry Manfe

Numerous Solaris customers consolidate multiple applications or servers on a single platform. The resulting configuration consists of many environments hosted on a single infrastructure and security constraints sometimes exist between these environments. Recently, a customer consolidated many virtual machines belonging to both their Intranet and Extranet on a pair of SPARC Solaris servers interconnected through Infiniband. Virtual Machines were mapped to Solaris Zones and one security constraint was to prevent SSH connections between the Intranet and the Extranet. This case study gives us the opportunity to understand how the Oracle Solaris Network Virtualization Technology - a.k.a. Project Crossbow - can be used to control outbound traffic from Solaris Zones.
