store.sun.com to Niagara/Solaris 10

James Dickens spied a new BluePrint on the planned redeployment of store.sun.com [PDF] to SunFire T2000 systems running Solaris 10. Beyond the tremendous reduction in occupied space and the around 90 percent estimated reduction in input power and output heat, the document describes the use of Solaris Containers to consolidate the middle tier servers, complete with invocations of zonecfg(1M) (for the zones the applications run inside of) and poolcfg(1M) (for the resource pools the zones sit upon).

Business applications are complex—maybe some smf(5) service conversions will appear in the next version to make the dependency and failure handling more precise.

This is really impressive! They went from 3xE10Ks and one E6500 to only 4 SunFire 2000s. I'm also very happy to see them using resource pools :-)
