Leading Virtualization Technology for Hosting and Enterprise Markets Achieves High-Marks for xSeries Performance on the Linux OS

Herndon, VA — November 15, 2004 — Today, SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, announced that Virtuozzo has achieved IBM ServerProven validation for IBM eServer xSeries Intel-based servers. Virtuozzo is capable of running on all IBM eServer xSeries systems on the Linux operating system, enabling IBM enterprise customers and hosting providers with the maximum ability to partition physical servers into hundreds or thousands of virtual private servers (VPS).

Virtuozzo achieved ServerProven status by being successfully deployed and running in a customer production environment. WebCentral, Australia’s largest hosting service provider hosting more than 60,000 websites and domains for corporations, government organizations and small and medium businesses, offers xSeries virtual dedicated servers powered by SWsoft’s Virtuozzo solution.

“Our Virtual Dedicated solutions have been very effective in providing dedicated capabilities at a fraction of the cost of implementing a traditional dedicated solution,” said Andrew Spicer, CEO, WebCentral. “The Virtuozzo software has helped us to provide a practical alternative for developers seeking a quality testing, sandbox or basic production server at a more affordable price point.”
