Projets techniques : pilotage et suivi des migrations « Branded Zone » et CFT

Abstract : Solaris Containers (including Solaris Zones) is an implementation of operating system-level virtualization technology first made available in 2005 as part of Solaris 10. A Solaris Container is the combination of system resource controls and the boundary separation provided by zones. Zones act as completely isolated virtual servers within a single operating system instance. By consolidating multiple sets of application services onto one system and by placing each into isolated virtual server containers, system administrators can reduce cost and provide all the same protections of separate machines on a single machine. Although all zones on the system share a common kernel, an additional feature set has been added called « Branded Zone » (BrandZ for short). This allows individual zones to behave in a manner other than the default brand of the global zone. CFT (Cross File Transfer) (product name: Synchrony Transfer) is an old, proprietary secure computer file transfer program and protocol from Axway Inc, still used extensively in French banking and related industries. CFT was for mainframe computers using the French X.25-based Transpac network, but was later ported to use Internet protocols as well. Client software must be purchased from Axway, and includes a license manager that enforce machine and transfer limits: it is available for Windows NT, Unix, MVS, VMS, GCOS, Netware, and AS400/iseries.
