While big name virtualization houses run multiple operating systems on a single server, Virtuozzo divides a single OS into different "containers." In a nutshell, it virtualizes the OS rather than the hardware.

If you missed our ever-intrepid coverage of the Virtuozzo 4.0 beta, here are the bullet points of enhancements:

  • Support for Windows Server 2003 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux clustering services, and backup enhancements.
  • Resource controls such as setting limits on bursts of CPU activity.
  • Real-time optimization of hardware resources, and an improved Virtuozzo file system to more effectively utilize hard disk resources

Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 is available now at $2,500 per dual CPU. ®
