Managing Containers with xVM Ops Center
By user12601629 on Jul 22, 2008
When I talk to customers about the forthcoming xVM Server product, people sometimes ask if Sun is still investing in Solaris Containers. Of course, the answer is yes. We have a huge number of customers who have invested in Containers technology, and it is part of the big xVM story. In particular, we want customers to use the capabilities in xVM Ops Center to improve how they manage an environment that includes Containers.
To that end, our crack writing squad has pulled together a blueprint on how to use xVM Ops Center and Solaris containers together. You can check it out here. This blueprint shows you exactly what you can do with Containers and the currently shipping Ops Center 1.1 product.
Now, this is just the begining of what Ops Center will do with Containers. We've recently staffed a new sub-team in the Ops Center group to work on a project that Mike calls Realms that will dramatically increase what Ops Center can manipulate with Containers. Spiffy name, eh? I'll talk more about that here in the coming weeks, but it's looking really interesting so far.
