This week, we announced a first version of the Sun xVM Server. The replay of the live webcast can be seen here, and also checkout the just opened open source community around it at http://xvmserver.org.
This product is basically the Xen-based hypervisor on Sun Solaris, but with excellent built-in management, nearly "appliance-like".
The hypervisor itself has been available for a while, as part of OpenSolaris, or "Nevada", builds at http://opensolaris.org. More specifically, here is lots of information: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/xen.
A Sun engineer, Simon Hayler, from Sun's UK sales organization, spent a few months here in beautiful California to become a go-to expert on usage of the xVM Hypervisor.
As part of his rotation here, he produced three great technical briefs.
Simon's blog entry about that is here.
The three documents are here, under "Technical Briefs".
Great work, Simon !
