Tech Article: Securing a Cloud-Based Data Center
When you build a private cloud, you need to protect sensitive data not only while it's in storage, but also during transmission between servers and clients, and when it's being used by an application. When a project is completed, the cloud must securely delete sensitive data and make sure the original data is kept secure. These are just some of the many security precautions a sysadmin needs to take to secure data in a cloud infrastructure. Orgad, Ron, and Richard and explain the rest and show you how to employ the security features in Oracle Solaris 11 to protect your cloud infrastructure. Part 2 of a three-part article on cloud deployments that use the Oracle Solaris Remote Lab as a case study.

Tech Article: The Role of Oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle Linux Containers in a Virtualization Strategy
Oracle Solaris zones are referred to as lightweight virtualization because they impose no overhead on the virtualization layer and the applications running in the non-global zones. As a result, they are a perfect choice for high performance applications. Detlef Drewanz continues his overview of virtualization strategies with a focus on Oracle Linux Containers and Oracle Solaris zones.

Blog: ZOSS - Zones on Shard Storage
If you configure Oracle Solaris 11 zones on shared storage, you can migrate them more easily. Easy migration through ZOSS lets you, for instance, detach the zone from a running system that you will be shutting down for maintenance, and attach it to a backup system. Or a larger system. Easy to do. New with Oracle Solaris 11.1.
