Solaris 10 10/08 is cool

Posted by deepees on January 19, 2009

Solaris 10  10/08 has some nice new features.  Here is the link to know about what’s new in Solaris 10/08. Especially the zfs boot is the thing that I was waiting for. One of these days I will play around with the booting stuff, looking forward to it. The 10/08 update also includes the code that allows for entire Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 environments to be run inside Solaris virtual private server containers. Up until now, this legacy container feature, which came out in the 5/08 update in May but which has been in development for years, has been sold as a separate product. Now, it is part of the Solaris 10 distribution. You also have

  • IP Instances: LAN and VLAN Separation for Non-Global Zones
  • DTrace can now be used in Non-Global zones.
  •  Here is where you can download Solaris 10 release 6 as they call it
