Best Practices for Running Oracle Databases in Oracle Solaris Containers
The Oracle Solaris operating system includes support for Oracle Solaris Containers, a virtualization technology that provides isolated and secure runtime environments within a single Oracle Solaris instance. Using Oracle Solaris Containers, administrators can manage separate workloads, control resource usage, and maintain IP network separation. These features can enable multiple applications, or even multiple instances of the same application, to securely coexist on a single system, providing potential server consolidation savings. Both Oracle Database 9i R2 and 10g R2 databases have been certified to run in an Oracle Solaris Container.
