Platform Portability and Unified Archives

Unified Archives are compatible between hardware platform models of the same instruction set architecture (ISA), as well as portable to virtual machines on the same ISA. For example, an archive created on a Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 system is deployable to more modern hardware, such as the Oracle SPARC T5 line of systems, as well as Logical Domains or Solaris Kernel Zones running on newer hardware.
