Joining the fray

I'm a Distinguished Engineer in the Solaris kernel development group, and have been working on various parts of Solaris for the past 10 years. Most recently, I was part of the team that developed Solaris Zones (aka "N1 Grid Containers"). This is a new feature available in Solaris 10 (available for download via Solaris Express) that lets you divide up a system into different application environments, where each environment is isolated from the rest. For more details, see the BigAdmin page where we've been posting information, or the work-in-progress paper we presented at the recent Usenix Virtual Machine conference. We're also working on a paper to appear at the upcoming Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference.

You rock Andy. Zones are so bad ass it's hard to comprehend. And FINALLY, it's so so nice to tell BSD people to shove it who brag about security and jails and what-not to shove it. :) No one can look at my Ultra2 running 10+ active zones like a dream and call it "Slowaris". :)
