Introduction to Solaris 9 Containers

The branded zones framework is used to create containers that contain non-native operating environments. These containers are branded zones used in the Oracle Solaris Operating System to run applications that cannot be run in a native environment. The brand described here is the solaris9 brand, Solaris 9 Containers for SPARC machines.
