Logical Domains (LDoms) and Solaris Containers:
LDoms technology allows you to allocate a system's resources, such as CPU, memory, and I/O, into logical groupings or domains. This enables you to create multiple discrete systems, each with their own operating system, resources, and identity within a single physical computer system.
Solaris Containers enable you to upgrade to the Solaris 10 OS from the Solaris 8 or Solaris 9 OS even if you are running applications that cannot be ported to the Solaris 10 OS. The software allows you to run most Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 applications, unchanged, on the latest SPARC systems and the Solaris 10 OS. An existing Solaris 8 system can be directly upgraded into a Solaris 8 container. An existing Solaris 9 system can be directly upgraded into a Solaris 9 container. The original host is not modified during this process.
Here are some LDoms and Solaris Containers resources:
