OpenSolaris

Nexenta alfa release 0.5 has arrived. It is the first Nexenta release which supports Solaris zones. It uses debootstrap technology in conjunction with remote APT repository which simplifies *a lot* of Zone software management routines.

It is possible to pre-install fresh zone with custom software out of the APT repository. In this article you will see how apache gets pre-installed and pre-configured to operate in a newly created Nexenta Zone.
