Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – April 30, 2007 – Server virtualization firm, SWsoft, has added a turn-key package for first-time corporate clients, including software and support for businesses exploring operating system (OS) virtualization.
The Virtuozzo Enterprise Starter Pack, priced at $1,198, enables new users to try out OS virtualization technology for a small server consolidation project or pilot deployment. The software can be downloaded, installed and up and running in minutes.
The Virtuozzo Starter Pack for either Windows or Linux allows up to four virtual environments and includes: — a single or dual CPU server license; — full management toolset for the starter pack server; — one year of Silver level support and maintenance.
Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft remarked, ”We’re offering a friction-less way for organizations to discover OS virtualization and Virtuozzo for the first time. The starter pack has the full range of capabilities and tools of the full Virtuozzo product at an attractive price point. Users can get comfortable with the technology, gain experience with its advantages and see how it complements their consolidation projects.”
The Virtuozzo Enterprise Starter Pack comes with full capabilities, including the following:
* VZP2V – Physical-to-Virtual tool that allows for easy migration from a dedicated physical server to a Virtuozzo virtual server by helping to determine what resources a server and application require. This ensures that the virtual server delivers the same performance as the physical server. * Management toolset to easily and completely manage the Starter Pack server including: provisioning, monitoring, backup, recovery, and cloning, among other features.
* A simple upgrade path to the full Virtuozzo product.
According to the company, last year, the company grew revenues from its Virtuozzo and Parallels virtualization product lines by 734 percent. An IDC industry analyst report published last September cited SWsoft as growing fastest among all vendors in the hot overall market for virtualization technology.
SWsoft Virtuozzo is desinged to partition a single Windows or Linux operating system instance into highly-efficient and scalable virtual environments. Virtuozzo includes patented technology that enables density of up to hundreds of virtual environments per physical server. Unlike virtual machines and hypervisors, Virtuozzo addresses the challenges faced by today’s datacenters of operating system sprawl. Its unique architecture and management tools make it the ideal solution for provisioning, monitoring and managing virtualized server resources.
