Oracle VM Server for SPARC

Oracle VM Server for SPARC (formerly Sun Logical Domains) is the SPARC hypervisor virtualization solution for simultaneously running multiple OS instances on a single physical domain. You can use the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software on Oracle SPARC platforms to create up to 128 virtual servers, called logical domains, on a single physical domain. This kind of configuration enables you to take advantage of the massive thread scale that is offered by SPARC T-Series and SPARC M-Series servers and the Oracle Solaris OS. You can also use OS-level virtualization features, such as Oracle Solaris zones, with Oracle VM Server for SPARC.

The latest release of Oracle VM Server for SPARC includes several new virtual networking performance enhancements. For more information, go to https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/vm/documentation/sparc-whatsnew-330281.html.
