10,000 zfs filesystems

Since the zone test is getting a bit long in the tooth, it is refreshing to see something new and different. While I squeezed 190 zones into a 1GB RAM Ultra 10,  Kory is squeezing 10,000 ZFS filesystems into a 1GB RAM v240.  I don't know what Kory is testing or why, but it just doesn't matter to me. I still think it is pretty darn cool.  Hat tip to Tony for the link.

Zones has to be one of my favorite features of Sol 10. As one example, i have a pair of v20z's running 20 different zones each for our dev/qa/whatever environemnts for sun's app and web servers stack.

This weekend I had to apply patches since we have that DST issue comming up and it had been a while...

So, is there any chance of improving the patch scenario with zones anytime soon? I mean, it took forever to apply all of the patches to those zones. Its bad enough that the normal solaris patch utilities can take a good while to patch the global zone, but when you add 20 non-global zones to the mix you are beyond a single pot of coffe. Its time to go to go watch a few nice long movies and hope that things dont go wrong.
