This is slightly inaccurate: I allows each zone to have its *own* stack, not a view into a single centralized stack. > IP instances have integrated. (build 56 or something? In b57. The key things (I think) to know for IP Instances: - Configuration time choice for the administrator - A complete and tunable network stack per zone-- including DHCP client, IPsec, etc. - Provides much greater network configuration flexibility for zones - Less centralized control in the global zone - Currently must be tied to a physical NIC -- in other words you must dedicate a real NIC (not a logical interface) to each IP instance you want to run. This limitation is expected to be lifted when the Virtual NIC part of Crossbow is integrated.
