This book discusses all of the forms of server virtualization, not just hypervisors. It covers the forms of virtualization that Solaris 10 provides and those that it can use. These include Solaris Containers (also called Solaris Zones), VirtualBox, Oracle VM ( x86 and SPARC; the latter was called Logical Domains), and Dynamic Domains.
One chapter is dedicated to the topic of choosing the best virtualization technology for a particular workload or set of workloads. Another chapter shows how to use each virtualization technology to achieve specific goals, including screenshots and command sequences. The last chapter of the book describes the need for virtualization management tools and then uses Oracle EM Ops Center as an example.
The book is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
