Solaris 11 Zones Anyone?

We're getting started on Solaris 11 and using zones and I'm not familiar with installing Oracle inside a zone.

Is a zone basically a standard solaris installation running "virtualized"?  In other words, for each zone, do we setup the necessary limits and parameters using the Solaris installation guide - pre-installation tasks? Or is that handled at the main server layer and replicated down to the zones?

My initial reading suggests that each zone is a standalone operating system in a "virtualized" environment but I'm not sure. (Also, is "virtualized" the right term for a zone in this context?)
