Combining Virtualization Technologies in Oracle Solaris 11.2

This chapter illustrates, at a high level, the implementation of a virtual environment that consolidates existing systems with virtualized and non-virtualized elements onto a single SPARC T5-2 system. The new system configuration uses Oracle VM Server for SPARC, Oracle Solaris Zones, and Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones to run virtual instances of different versions of the Solaris OS.

Note - You could also implement this configuration on a SPARC T4, SPARC M5, or SPARC M6 system.
