This Oracle Solaris release supports the creation of virtual networks in a single network by configuring zones as well as virtual network cards (VNICs). VNICs are network interfaces that are created on top of physical NICs. The combination of zones and VNICs is an effective way to consolidate a huge datacenter that contains a large number of physical systems into fewer systems. For more information about virtual networking, see Part III, Network Virtualization and Resource Management, in Oracle Solaris Administration: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization.
