Server-software company backs Itanium

SWsoft has released a new version of its Virtuozzo server software for Intel's Itanium processor, the company said Monday. Virtuozzo lets a single server act in some ways like several independent machines, and the software benefits from having the large amounts of memory that the 64-bit Itanium can accommodate more gracefully than 32-bit Xeon or Pentium computers can.

Virtuozzo is often used by companies hosting many Web sites on one server. One customer using the product is USonyx, which is testing the market by using Virtuozzo to create the equivalent of 300 severs on a single Hewlett-Packard rx2600 Itanium 2 system.
