Zones partitioning technology is used to virtualize operating system services and provide an isolated and secure environment for running applications. Each Oracle Solaris system is a global zone. Within a global zone, specific non-global zones can be created. For information about creating and administering non-global zones on your system, see the zones section in the Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.
