Solaris zones provides a means of creating virtualized operating system environments within an instance of the Solaris 10 OS. Solaris zones allow one or more applications to run in isolation from other activity on your system. For complete information about installing and configuring a Solaris Container, refer to System Administration Guide: Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Solaris Zones.
You must determine which Solaris zone Oracle Application Server will use. Oracle Application Server can run within a global zone or non-global zone configuration.
