Darryn - Zones

Gentlemen,

Last episode when asked about what features from other OS's he'd like to see in FreeBSD Allan mentioned Illumos' zones. I'm curious about what the disparity between zones and jails currently is, i was under the impression that they were very similar. Can you elaborate?

Also do you feel that there are greater opportunities for collaboration between the Illumos project and the BSD's? While there are analogues between zones, branded zones, kvm and crossbow in jails, the linuxulator, bhyve and vimage my (largely uninformed) impression is that the Illumos (SmartOS specifically) technologies are a little more mature.

I appreciate that you are not Illumos experts, perhaps this could be an opportunity for another Cantrill interview? ;)

Thank you,
Drin
