Logical Domains 1.0 Early Access Now Available!

It's here! LDoms 1.0 Early Access has just been posted to the Sun Download Center. This 68+ MB tarball includes new firmware images for T1000, T2000, Netra T2000 Server & Netra CP3060 Blade systems; mandatory patches to Solaris 10 11/06 (aka Update 3); the unbundled LDoms Manager & security packages; documentation; and an install script. In addition, a Sun BluePrints article entitled Beginners Guide to LDoms: Understanding and Deploying Logical Domains is available separately.

This is Early Access software. As stated on the download page: "This is an unsupported technology preview of Logical Domains software, providing early access to those interested in the technology". In other words, there are known bugs, limitations & rough edges (all of which we're working hard to eliminate for our 1.0 General Availability release later this spring).

As the LDoms Manager team lead, I'm very excited to help make this technology available for folks to try out. Everyone on the LDoms team is thrilled to have reached this major milestone, and we all look forward to hearing about the experiences of all our early adopters. We welcome your feedback (ldoms-feedback AT sun DOT com) to help us improve the product, and you can participate in the discussion at the LDoms SysAdmin Hub on BigAdmin.
