SmartOS is like having vagrant/docker/virtualbox builtin in your OS

I recently had a chance to try out SmartOS after my last experience in application porting on it (2012) and I was impressed by the virtualization features that are made available directly by the os. One set of commands allows downloading images, running either vm like container or namespace like ┬ácontainers. Zones also allow you to run debian/centos applications on SmartOS inside a lx zone with system call translation … Awesome.
