Yes, it is... So, where's the problem? (I know, where the problem is, but...)

PSARC/2010/250 EOF of Solaris xVM dom0 from End of June 2010

We've been through this a couple times:

If you want "live-migration" you need NO LOCAL disks, therefore the ZFS
advantages are in the net-based storage box

DTrace doesn't add any advantage, as the xVM dtrace integration is
ASYNCHRONOUS, and doesn't guarantee the arrival of all messages from the

Which leaves COMSTAR, yes, that's sad.

But: OVM does already provide tons of templates (preconfigured images with
whole app stacks), and, as mentioned, a way better GUI...

So, from a business point of view, for DCs, that's the right decision...

Which also implies, that inside Sun/Oracle no one any longer takes care of the
updating of the Xen dom0 port/part.
