Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – January 12, 2007 – Server virtualization and automation software company, SWsoft’s Virtuozzo for Linux 3.0, has been acknowledged as the Best Server Virtualization (OS Virtualization) by InfoWorld magazine in its January, 2007 issue.
SWsoft is among the 41 winners of the 2007 Technology of the Year Awards selected by InfoWorld’s Test Center editors and reviewers from more than 230 products tested during 2006. According to the article, Paul Venezia, Senior Contributing Editor explained, ”2006 will be viewed as the year server virtualization broke out of the labs and QA centers and into production environments in IT shops all over the world. For the largest to the smallest infrastructures, it’s been a banner year for server consolidation.”
InfoWorld continued: ”SWsoft has its ducks in a row with Virtuozzo for Linux 3.0. It’s a well-designed and well-implemented OS-level virtualization solution at a surprisingly low cost. Taking a different approach than hardware virtualization solutions such as VMware and Xen, Virtuozzo is an outstanding choice for companies with large infrastructures.”
Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft remarked, ”Virtuozzo enterprise sales doubled quarter-over-quarter throughout 2006, so it’s clear that our customers are realizing the benefits that led to InfoWorld’s selection – including cost savings, better utilization of their servers and improved management of their IT infrastructure. We appreciate that the editors at InfoWorld have acknowledged the unique attributes of operating system virtualization.”
According to the company, with Virtuozzo, a single Linux or Windows OS instance can be dynamically partitioned into multiple, highly-efficient virtual environments. The Virtuozzo architecture enables each virtual environment to scale up to the full resources of the physical server and maintain performance at levels consistent with a native server. Virtuozzo enables density of up to hundreds of virtual environments on a single physical server, which is many more times the number of virtual machines than are possible with other virtualization technologies.
OS-level virtualization is believed to address the challenge faced by today’s datacenters of operating systems sprawl. Virtuozzo provides efficiency and manageability that result in the lowest total cost-of-ownership and fastest ROI for customers, which differs from virtual machines and hypervisors.OPEN FUSION Initiative – including Virtuozzo, Plesk, SiteBuilder, HSPcomplete and PEM.
