Xen allows one to create fully virtualized virtual machines via hardware virtualization and para-virtualized "Xen" machines. In this regard it is probably more functional then Zones and if the PV machines are properly designed it should be more reliable. I think Sun released a Xen PV enabled version of the Solaris kernel recently, so you could run Zones in a Solaris PV under Xen, if you were so inclined... -Ross ______________________________________________________________________ This e-mail, and any attachments thereto, is intended only for use by the addressee(s) named herein and may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information.
