Overview of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC Software

This chapter provides an overview of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software.

Oracle VM Server for SPARC provides highly efficient, enterprise-class virtualization capabilities for Oracle SPARC T-series, SPARC M-series, SPARC S-series, Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers, and Fujitsu M10 servers. Using the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software, you can create up to 128 virtual servers, called logical domains, on a single system. This kind of configuration enables you to take advantage of the massive thread scale offered by SPARC T-series, SPARC M-series, SPARC S-series servers, Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers, and Fujitsu M10 servers and the Oracle Solaris OS.
