Virtualization Efficiency and Manageability
Virtualization technology has the ability to increase data center density many times. By consolidating tens, or hundreds of virtual environments on one physical server, IT managers can reduce hardware costs, while increasing utilization. The ability to effectively manage and automate a growing catalog of virtual assets ensures that complexity is reduced and that virtualization delivers cost savings.

With Virtuozzo operating system (OS)-level server virtualization technology, a single Linux or Windows OS instance can be dynamically partitioned into multiple, highly-efficient virtual environments. Virtuozzo is the first and only virtualization technology that addresses the challenge faced by today’s datacenters of operating systems sprawl where a number of different operating systems require support, maintenance and updating.

Virtuozzo provides efficiency and manageability that result in the lowest total cost-of-ownership and fastest ROI for customers.
