Community Contributions to BrandZ

"BrandZ" is the OpenSolaris project name for a framework which allows non-Solaris applications to run in Solaris Containers. This framework exists in OpenSolaris, and is planned for the next release of Solaris 10 (real soon now).

Solaris Containers for Linux Applications is the first implementation in the BrandZ framework, and runs Red Hat and CentOS applications. In addition, non-Sun members of the OpenSolaris community have begun contributing new code to BrandZ. Albert Lee has demonstrated the ability to create a Debian zone.

Also, Wei Shen is leading an effort to enable 64-bit apps to run in Linux-branded Containers.
