Solaris xVM putback into OpenSolaris Completed

Big congratulations to the Sun xVM team for completing their putback into OpenSolaris build 75, as listed on OpenSolaris Flag Days. To quote from the Flag Days page:

With the putback of:

  • 6551858 PSARC/2006/260 Solaris on Xen

    Solaris Nevada now supports the xVM platform on x86 and x64 systems.

    As a Solaris developer, para-virtualized Solaris on xVM constitutes a new platform for x86, and thus you must test on this platform when making relevant changes.

    And not to be outdone, John Fowler did a great demo of Microsoft Windows running on Sun xVM this week at the Intel Developer Forum. You can run a flash animation of the demo to see for yourself. Unfortunately the flash file is just over the 2 MB file limit for blogs.sun.com, so you will have to download as two parts.

  • First download the flash file
  • Then don't click directly on the link but press the option key and click (Mac) or right-button click (Windows) to save this html file to disk - don't just click the link and open it in a flash enabled browser.
