Wondering if anybody has done this successfully or similar: -

We are running Ingres II 2.5 on a Sun E450 Server. This version of Ingres will only run on Solaris 8 or older. The E450 become EOL shortly & we are looking to set up a DR scenario on a newer supported Server. It has been suggested to us that we run the application in a Solaris 8 container on a Solaris 10 server. Have no experience of this & wondering if it is a workable solution. Advice appreciated.

Well, that was exactly the type of scenario that Solaris 8 branded zones were created for, so I would say yes, it is
workable.
