Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – March 31, 2006 – Website hosting automation company, SWsoft, has been named a finalist for a LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award in the server virtualization category – with its leading operating system level server virtualization software, Virtuozzo.
Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft commented on the honor, ”We’re very gratified by this recognition of our product, which is battle-tested with thousands of installations around the world during the past six years. Our virtualization technology has unmatched performance and scalability, built-in zero downtime migration, and the industry’s best automation tools and management capabilities.”
According to the company, the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Awards recognize product and service innovations by LinuxWorld exhibitors, and are judged by a group of respected industry experts managed by LinuxWorld Magazine. There are 12 product categories, representing major areas of innovation in the Linux and Open Source community. Virtuozzo will be featured at SWsoft’s Booth # 302. Winners will be announced in a ceremony at the LinuxWorld Boston 2006 event on Wednesday, April 5 at 12:30 p.m, at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center.
SWsoft is an established, fast-growing leader in server automation and virtualization software. The proliferation of servers in the data center has led to increased complexity and costs. Virtualization helps to reverse this trend by dramatically reducing the need for adding physical servers (and their associated capital, power, software and management costs) by turning an existing single physical server into multiple isolated and secure virtual environments, enabling maximum server utilization and availability.
Virtuozzo virtual environments perform and execute as independent servers with their own memory, I/O, configuration files, users and applications running on a single operating system. Virtuozzo management tools provide unified management of thousands of virtual environments on hundreds of physical servers.
