Solaris Zones: Rapid Application Development
Many development systems are based upon dedicated hardware infrastructure, which limits the number of simultaneous development releases. With Solaris Zones, multiple application releases can be developed at the same time on a platform, where the developed application is encapsulated, to be moved to test, and rapidly cloned into production.
Solaris Zones offer the following features:
- rapid boot
- built-in rollback
- system mobility
A use-case by a telephone carrier is illustrated in the following Solaris Zone presentation.
