In my previous post, I wondered whether Niagara 2 (ULtraSparc T2) could run 64 different OS instances or were they just Solaris Zones (containers). It is confirmed that it could indeed run 64 OS instances using LDom built-in technology in T2. I found this Sun blog post that demonstrates 64 instances of Solaris running in 64 T2 threads. In another post it goes further and shows Solaris and Ubuntu running simultaneously. That makes T2 one helluva multicore chip!
