Linux software company signs deals

SWsoft, a VMware competitor whose software lets a single Intel server run 10 to 200 instances of Linux, has signed deals to sell its product in conjunction with Dell Computer and IBM servers, the company said Tuesday. The Magnum-SC servers include SWsoft's Virtuozzo software installed on IBM or Dell servers with as many as eight processors. Prices range from $10,000, for models that can host up to 10 Linux servers and are based on IBM's x330 or Dell's PowerEdge 1650, to $50,000, for a model using the x360 or PowerEdge 6650 and hosting up to 25 servers. The company didn't release pricing for a top-end version for hosting 50 Linux servers, based on a PowerEdge 8450 or x370.
