Rapid Service Provisioning with Logical Domains on OpenSolaris 2009.06.

OpenSolaris 2009.06 is launched at CommunityOne West, San Francisco, on June 1 2009.


One of the new features or technologies is that now, OpenSolaris can run, and is supported, on UltraSPARC machines, which of course also
includes the Sun T-Series servers, with the UltraSPARC T[1,2,2+] chips.

Why is that important ?


That means you now can configure and run Logical Domains, or LDoms, on an OpenSolaris 2009.06 machine, and use this OS as control, service, or guest domain.

Watch a short demo in the below screencast, how you can use LDoms, and underlying ZFS, to very rapidly create new guest domain, or virtual machines, and therefore application services. This demo is also shown at pod # 340 during CommunityOne and JavaOne.




Logical Domain Mobility between Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris 2009.06

OpenSolaris 2009.06 is launched at CommunityOne West, San Francisco, on June 1 2009.

One of the new features or technologies is that now, OpenSolaris can run, and is supported, on UltraSPARC machines, which of course also includes the Sun T-Series servers, with the UltraSPARC T[1,2,2+] chips.

Why is that important ?

That means you now can configure and run Logical Domains, or LDoms, on an OpenSolaris 2009.06 machine, and use this OS as control, service, or guest domain.

This also means you can migrate domains (Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris 2009.06) from a machine running a Solaris 10 control domain, to machine running OpenSolaris 2009.06, and vice versa.

Logical Domains (LDoms) Mobility

Logical Domains (LDoms) provide built-in and no-cost virtualization capabilities for Sun's CoolThreads Servers.

It allows you to create virtual machines that take advantage of the massive thread scale offered by these platforms. Create up to 256 virtual servers on one system... for free!

With LDoms 1.1, the ability to migrate a guest domain, i.e. suspend the running Solaris instance to memory, copy it to another physical CMT machine, and resume it there, was introduced.

Watch the following screencast to see how this works and can be done.
