SUN N1 equivalent - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi. Recently, i came across this SUN N1 technology stuff. Did some reading, and realized that its the equivalent of HP RP** series of servers where u can do logical partitioning and etc, and also IBM Regatta. Any comments? Rgds...

    Default SUN N1 equivalent

    Any comments?

    N1 is a provisioning architecture, as is IBM's OnDemand and HP's VSE
    (formerly Adaptive Enterprise, formerly Utility Data Center).

    Now what is ogous is the Sun domain concept (on the SunFire higher
    end boxes), tyhe HP nPar/vPar concept and IBM LPAR. This is physical
    partitioning.

    Finally, you have the logical partitioning, aka Sun Containers/Zones,
    HP's Integrity Virtual Machines, IBM's DLPARs and VMWare/Xen/Virtuozzo.


    The "partitioning" continuum is an area of almost infinite complexity
    and almost zero consistency, so it's important to make sure that you're
    being careful in what you're drawing comparisons between.

    inside of the technologies to push its progress. (Getting it into some
    Linux distro maybe).

    VMWare is winning the x86 $-ware space, Xen is winning the x86 !$-ware
    space. The Unix vendors are all doing practically the same things, so
    it really doesn't matter who is winning.

    I do have to say that I like the concept of N1+Containers/Zones more
    than I like HP VSE+IVM or DLPAR+OnDemand.

    Finally, hardware partitioning/virtualization is just a bagatelle for
    application virtualization anyway. The ultimate goal is to have an
    application package that can be migrated onto any compute resource
    without knowledge or preference on which architecture/OS/storage it
    requires, just consuming resources.
