Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework (VDCF)

VDCF is a platform management framework for the Solaris Operating System. VDCF allows to deploy, operate, migrate and monitor a virtualized data center based on Solaris 10 and 11 Zones (Containers) and/or Logical Domains controlled by a centralized management server. Using VDCF you can easily combine both virtualization technologies to get the most flexibility and benefit for your agile Enterprise Grade Private Cloud environment.
