SWsoft brings virtualization to Itanium

SWsoft's Virtuozzo software is released in an Itanium version available for Linux. A version for Windows is planned for later release.

SWsoft has released an Itanium version of its Virtuozzo software, which lets a single server operating system appear to be several separate copies the company calls virtual private servers. The new software for the higher-end Intel processor family is available for Linux today and will be available for Windows in the future, the company said. The company charges $999 per processor for the software.

Virtualization, technology that generally makes computers into a more flexible and efficient foundation, is a hot area in the industry today. SWsoft rival EMC doesn't offer Itanium versions of its software, choosing to focus on the higher-volume market for servers based on x86 chips such as Intel's Xeon.
