Introduction to Oracle Solaris 10 Zones

BrandZ provides the framework to create branded zones, which are used to run applications that cannot be run in an Oracle Solaris 11 environment. The brand described here is the solaris10 brand, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones. Workloads running within these solaris10 branded zones can take advantage of the enhancements made to the Oracle Solaris kernel and utilize some of the innovative technologies available only on the Oracle Solaris 11 release, such as virtual NICs (VNICs) and ZFS deduplication.

Note - If you want to create a solaris10 branded zone now, go to Chapter 30, Assessing an Oracle Solaris 10 System and Creating an Archive.
