Virtuozzo Delivers Complete Host and Guest Support for a Broad range of 32-bit and 64-bit Platforms

Herndon, VA — September 26, 2005 — Today, SWsoft, an established leader in server automation and virtualization software, announced that as part of its 64-bit road map, Virtuozzo 2.6.2 for Linux server virtualization now supports AMD Opteron™ and Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) based servers. Virtuozzo’s true 64-bit support enables customers to take full advantage of the benefits of 64-bit computing for virtualized infrastructures and applications. The combination of Linux, Virtuozzo server virtualization and 64-bit processing forms the core of a true “next generation” enterprise computing architecture.

“Offering AMD and Intel support at both host and guest levels, coupled with our near-zero overhead, provides maximum performance and ROI,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. “Virtuozzo’s ability to scale to the full power of the physical machine and to support virtually any hardware the operating system supports ensures no-compromise virtualization. Our solution supports a wide variety of scenarios from disaster recovery and server consolidation to business application workload agility, which enables real-time balancing of processing intensive applications.”

"The power and flexibility of virtualization is now a reality and is moving into the next generation of platforms,” said Tony Iams, Vice President, Ideas International. "Solutions such as SWsoft’s Virtuozzo server virtualization software offer 64-bit computing power for virtual scenarios that could help facilitate even faster adoption and transitions to next generation platforms."

Unmatched Server Virtualization
Virtuozzo for Linux and Virtuozzo for Windows radically increase the power of enterprise servers by turning a single physical server into multiple isolated virtual private servers (VPSs). Virtuozzo operating system (OS) level virtualization delivers unique benefits including:

  • High Performance — Efficient technology with near-zero overhead delivers maximum density, scalability up to 16-CPU SMP and 64 GB of RAM, and availability by migrating VPSs between physical servers in seconds.

  • Expansive Platform Support — Linux and Windows operating systems and any underlying hardware; fully supports native 32 and 64-bit systems at host and guest levels.

  • Powerful Toolsets — Intuitive and effective management of large groups of servers and VPSs with a full set of client web-based and command line tools including physical to virtual (VZPV) capabilities..

  • Rapid ROI — Lower hardware, software and management costs due to advanced architecture and automation minimize total cost of ownership and drive rapid return-on-investment.

Availability of Virtuozzo
Virtuozzo for Linux is now available for AMD Opteron and Intel EM64T platforms. Virtuozzo for Windows and Virtuozzo for Linux (32-bit and Itanium) are also generally available.
