Joining the fray
By tucker on Jun 16, 2004
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.
