SWsoft adding 64-bit support this summer

Company's Virtuozzo software makes Windows or Linux servers appear to have multiple independent instances of their operating systems.

SWsoft, whose Virtuozzo software makes Windows or Linux servers appear to have multiple independent instances of their operating systems, will release support for new 64-bit x86 processors this summer. The company announced its plans Tuesday. New 64-bit processors from Intel and Advanced Micro Devices permit easy use of more than 4GB of memory, a useful feature for computers running many independent tasks.

Also Tuesday, VMware--along with Microsoft a major SWsoft competitor--reported financial results. The EMC subsidiary had revenue of $80 million in the first quarter of 2005, an increase of 104 percent over the year-earlier quarter. VMware introduced partial 64-bit support into its newest workstation product last week.
