Description

Immutable Service Container configuration is intended to be used as a virtual single system. The global zone performs administrative and monitoring functions similar to those of a system controller whereas all end-user services and functions should be installed into the non-global zone. In this way, services such as packet filtering, NAT and auditing can operate without being exposed to services or users operating inside of the non-global zone. This enables greater operational integrity as those services and users are not able to alter the configurations or logs associated with these services. Additional non-global zones can be added as needed. This configuration uses a single exposed network interface and IP address for all of its communication even though internally the service is separated to run inside of its own non-global zone.

Organizations can further customize the configuration based upon their requirements to add things such as resource controls, read-only and read-write file systems (to the non-global zone), specific users and services, etc.
