Running Sun Java Enterprise System on the Sun Fire T2000 Server

Sun Fire T2000 Server

Sreekanth Setty from the Performance, Availability and Architecture Engineering group at Sun Microsystems has published a very informative paper on Deploying Sun Java Enterprise System on the Sun Fire T2000 Server using Solaris Containers (PDF).

In the paper, he describes how a system administrator could deploy and tune Sun's Java Enterprise System software on a Sun Fire T2000 using Solaris Zones. The paper also includes results of the JESMark benchmark (that models an employee portal of a large corporation) that was used to test the suggested tuning parameters.
