Just 3 answers to this:  

- yes it is free with Solaris 9 and a link to a WP on service consolidation
using SRM (email me if you want a copy...)
- yes it is free for the first CPU
- yes virtual partitions (ala Vmware?)  would be "ideal" and there may be
directions to this in future Solaris releases (10?), with CPU's approaching
5 Ghz in 18 months... something's got to be done with this immense
processing power....
