Parallels makes nice with Red Flag and Ubuntu

Embraces all communists

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Parallels - aka the artist formerly known as SWsoft - will continue its march through China in tandem with Linux maker Red Flag Software.

Red Flag and Parallels will offer a bundle tying Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 together with Red Flag Linux Server Version 5.0. This gives Red Flag's customers a direct path to the container style of server virtualization, which centers on slicing a single copy of an operating system into multiple parts. Parallels released Version 4.0 of its flagship server software last month.

Parallels has proved very active in the Chinese market. Last year, leading hardware vendor Inspur agreed to pre-install Virtuozzo on its systems.

In related Linux distribution news, Parallels has cuddled up to Canonical, the maker of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu users can now find Parallels Workstation as a choice in the collection of partner software available for the operating system. Those willing to go to the trouble of clicking the add/remove button and installing Parallels will receive a free 15-day trial of the software. You can buy fully-functional code from Canonical or Parallels. ®
