Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – March 26, 2007 – In an effort to assist customers’ IT infrastructure optimization, server automation and virtualization software firm, SWsoft, has
joined the HP ProLiant Partner program, to combine its Virtuozzo server virtualization software, with HP ProLiant servers.
The two companies have validated Virtuozzo operating system (OS) virtualization software running on HP ProLiant servers. The solution creates virtual environments that can consolidate several servers into one physical server, using either Linux or Windows, which improves utilization and makes greater use of server resources. Virtuozzo is available for multiple Linux distributions and Microsoft Windows Server 2003, and operates on HP ProLiant and Integrity platforms based on x86, x86-64 and Itanium processors.
Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft remarked, “Collaborating with HP combines our highly-scalable and manageable OS virtualization software with high-performance HP servers to help customers increase utilization rates and improve their return on investment. Virtuozzo software is ideal for HP systems that range from ProLiant servers for SMBs to HP Integrity SMP systems for mission-critical workloads.”
Carl DCosta, Director, Infrastructure Solutions, Technology Solutions Group at HP added, “With SWsoft’s Virtuozzo now validated on the HP ProLiant server portfolio, customers have a broader choice of virtualization technology to modify or provision their servers quickly to handle their changing business needs.”
According to the company,
with SWsoft Virtuozzo, a single operating system instance can be dynamically partitioned into multiple, highly-efficient and scalable virtual environments. Virtuozzo includes patented technology that enables density of up to hundreds of virtual environments on a single physical server.
