Virtualization of legacy apps within containers
Sun has just released an update to Solaris 10 to allow the virtualization of legacy apps within containers. This has been something that many users have been wanting for some time now, as many Solaris 8 & 9 apps either don’t run at all or they don’t run properly under Solaris 10.
Many claim that this has stopped some IT shops from moving to Solaris 10 due to issues with legacy apps under Solaris 10 and the inability to get these apps updated to run under Solaris 10.
In addition, for the virtualization of legacy apps update Sun has also added SpeedStep support, as well. They have added some other goodies, too, to make the latest version more appealing to those on the fence as to whether they should update or not.
