Quoting from official announcement:
Today, SWsoft, an established leader in server automation and virtualization software, announced an updated 64-bit roadmap to support Intel and AMD server technologies. SWsoft?s Virtuozzo, a server virtualization solution for Linux and Windows platforms, delivers high end server support for not only pure 64-bit systems but for next generation memory-intensive applications. With updated 64-bit support available in the summer of 2005, Virtuozzo extends its lead in high performance server virtualization computing.
?Customers investing in 64-bit technology will be pleased with SWsoft?s commitment to computing and performance advances,? said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. ?Virtuozzo is the first server virtualization solution to use the maximum computing power of Intel and AMD. Virtuozzo?s architecture is better able to take advantage of underlying hardware and software and doesn?t have to recreate technology to recognize full potential.?
“Worldwide revenues for virtual environment software, the aggregate market containing virtual machine software, grew nearly 25% between 2003 and 2004,” said Dan Kusnetzky, IDC’s VP of system software research. “Virtualized environments supported on high-volume, powerful, and yet, relatively low cost 32- and 64-bit hardware can help organizations reduce costs in some important areas while still allowing them to implement IT-based solutions offering real business value.”
Unmatched Server Virtualization Extended
Virtuozzo server virtualization for Linux and Windows creates multiple isolated Virtual Private Servers (VPSs) on a single physical server enabling each VPS to perform and execute exactly like a stand-alone server. Unlike other hardware emulation approaches to virtualization, Virtuozzo provides Operating System (OS) level virtualization.
The core benefits of Virtuozzo include:
– High Performance
?Thin? technology that adds no system calls or overhead
– Expansive Hardware and Software Support
Interacts with existing OS and hardware; fully supports native 32 and 64-bit, SMP, 16-CPU and 64 GB RAM
– High Scalability
Interacts A single physical server can house tens or hundreds of VPSs
– Complete Isolation
Each VPS is completely isolated using a Kernel Abstraction Layer and Virtuozzo File System
– Robust Resource Management
Complete control over CPU, memory, disk and network I/O
– Powerful Management Tools
Easily manage large and potentially remote groups of servers and VPSs with a full set of administrative and VPS owner tools
– Rapid ROI
Virtuozzo drives lower hardware, software and management costs minimizing total cost of ownership and facilitating a rapid ROI
