Here's one qay zones will save time: deployment. Instead of going
througha whole installation (seperate server), one simply needs to
create a new zone (a much faster process).
And zones are obviously MUCH more efficient when it comes to applying
patches. Instead of applying N sets of patches (where N is the number
of servers), one needs to just apply one set. (This disregards any
local zone-specific patches.)
