Linux Containers (LXC)

At First Customer Ship of Solaris 10, a technology known as Non-Global Zones (NGZ) / Containers were introduced into the Sun Microsystems realm. Given Oracle Corporations acquisition of Sun Microsystems, they became the “parent” of this technology as it relates to Solaris.

The technology allowed one to configure a “jail-cell” type environment where the root file system of the NGZ was chrooted in a fashion that prevented it access to the root file system of the Global Zone. The Global Zone was created when Solaris was installed.

This Technology is now being addressed/added to Linux Operating Systems.
