Make use of Solaris features (DTrace, ZFS, Zones/KVM, Crossbow)

Registered by tmetsch on 2011-09-26

Integrate Solaris based features tightly with OpenStack - DTrace, ZFS, Zones & KVM support, Crossbow for networking are topics which come to my mind.

Could make use of several python based wrappers to integrate those technologies...

Should look into integrating SmartOS, OpenIndiana etc for OpenStack

Fair enough / I'm still working on some libraries to make this happen - those could than be integrated with nova... -- tmetsch
