Solaris Cluster on OpenSolaris

The source code that went out today for the first time allows Solaris Cluster to be built for and run on the OpenSolaris binary distribution. This is a small but important step in project Colorado.

In other news about project Colorado, Thorsten wrote a great post outlining the various reasons that Solaris Cluster on OpenSolaris is not just a “compile and run” exercise. There are some significant technical issues that we must address.

Finally, I want to point out that Solaris Cluster Express 9/08 was released last week. This build of Solaris Cluster runs on Solaris Express build 97, and contains some exciting new features that have not yet been released in Solaris Cluster 3.2, such as "zone clusters."

Comments:

Please elaborate on "zone clusters".

Your post implies that it is currently not possible to run zones in clustered configurations on Solaris 10 with Sun Cluster. Is that the case?

@UX-admin

Sun Cluster on Solaris 10 has supported zones for several years, as I wrote about on the Sun Cluster Oasis blog: http://blogs.sun.com/SC/entry/sun_cluster_and_solaris_zones

What's new with the "zone clusters" is a unified way to manage the zones in a clustered configuration, via the new clzonecluster(1CL) command. See this post for some preliminary details: http://blogs.sun.com/Maddy/entry/how_to_create_a_zone
