Getting Started With Oracle Solaris Zones on Shared Storage

You can use the Oracle Solaris Zones on shared storage feature in Oracle Solaris to transparently access and manage shared storage resources in zones. These automated capabilities simplify deployment, administration, and migration of zones and their corresponding shared storage resources in Oracle Solaris systems.

You can describe the corresponding shared storage resources in a host-independent format in the zone configuration. Zones installations using this feature are encapsulated into dedicated ZFS storage pools hosted on shared storage devices.

The Oracle Solaris Zones framework will automatically configure and unconfigure shared storage resources. Any ZFS storage pool management tasks required throughout the various zone managment activities will be performed automatically.
