This video tutorial shows how to install and review SmartOS on VMware Workstation/Player step by step. It also helps for installing SmartOS on physical computer or bare-metal server. We’ll also create and configure Pool and Zone. Finally we’ll install Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server on SmartOS.
Triton SmartOS Key Features
Triton SmartOS leverages Zones, a hardened container runtime environment that does not depend upon VM hosts for security. Patented resource protections insulate containers from noisy neighbors and ensure that each container gets its fair share of I/O.
By eliminating layers of virtualization and running containers directly on bare metal, applications enjoy the highest possible performance. And, because you are running on OS virtualized containers, you can easily scale your applications and infrastructure up and down.
