Powerful New VZP2V Physical to Virtual Migration Tool Integrated with Virtuozzo

San Francisco, CA — August 10, 2005 – Today at LinuxWorld Conference & Expo (August 8-11, 2005 at the Moscone Center), SWsoft, an established leader in server automation and virtualization software, announced the availability of Virtuozzo 2.6.2 for Linux. The newest version of Virtuozzo for Linux includes physical to virtual migration (VZP2V), expanded Virtuozzo Control Center (VZCC) tools, expanded platform support and more. Virtuozzo for Linux 2.6.2 is unique in providing full support of both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.

“We are excited to provide this new tool to help customers easily and accurately migrate servers from physical to virtual servers,” said Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, SWsoft. “Virtuozzo now makes it easy for IT professionals to quickly and easily automate the transition from a physical infrastructure to a truly virtual infrastructure with its significant increases in performance, availability and automation. Along with many additional 2.6.2 enhancements, customers will experience additional benefits in leveraging a higher performing virtualization and utility computing solution.”

"As virtualization gains momentum, users are becoming increasingly concerned with managing the burden of installing and updating large numbers of operating system instances", said Tony Iams, Vice President of System Software Research at Ideas International, Inc. "For appropriate workloads, operating system virtualization tools such as SWsoft Virtuozzo provide many of the same benefits as virtual machines, but avoid much of the overhead associated with managing each virtual server."

  • VZP2V – Innovative migration tool assists with migrating between physical and Virtuozzo servers that is flexibly supported in VZCC, VZMC and command line. The VZP2V tool migrates all data, system and user files.

  • Expansive Platform Support – Complete OS platform parity; interacts with existing Linux and Windows and any supported hardware; fully supports native 32 and 64-bit systems.

  • Robust Service Level Management – Real-time control over CPU, memory, disk and network I/O resources with monitoring, accounting and reporting.

  • High Availability – Complete OS platform parity; interacts with existing Linux and Windows and any supported hardware; fully supports native 32 and 64-bit systems.

  • Powerful Toolsets – Self management of large and potentially remote groups of servers and VPSs with a full set of administrative and VPS owner web-based, client and command line tools.
