Thats really not the focus of the s8 branded zone.
If you're going to spend a lot of time tuning up
the zone, then you'd probably be better served
spending that time getting your software stack running
in a native s10 zone.  The s8 brand is really intended
to help with consolidating unsupported, legacy software
stacks onto newer hardware.  If you have a lot of time
to spend on each stack, then why spend it on something
thats obsolete?  Of course, nothing is stopping you
from doing this though.
