 almost but not quite. A SPARC LDOM is more of a hardware partitionig, cpu and
memory are dedicated to the LDOM for its exclusive use.  You can configure some
dynamism by allowing cpu to be added/removed automatically when the load average
increases/decreases but this relies on the guest doing dynamic reconfiguration.
