The trick is in Solaris’
Containers virtualization and its xVM widgetry.
The new Solaris On Demand
program will provide third-party hosting complements of NaviSite, AT&T USi
Communications and NTT Europe Online.
There’s a free 90-day proof-of-concept environment promising 99.5% guaranteed uptime available to try out.
Either Sun or one of the hosters will manage the applications and Sun is promising to help with the transition.
Cost will ultimately depend on
the resources needed.
There are something like 6,500 commercial Solaris ISVs.
