SWsoft Embraces Intel Virtualization Technology

Filed under
News

SAN FRANCISCO — March 9, 2006 – at the Intel Developer Forum - SWsoft, the leading provider of operating system virtualization and automation tools, today announced its Virtuozzo support of Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT) capabilities, including the recently unveiled Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) specification.

By supporting Intel VT and Intel VT-d, Virtuozzo will offer customers additional levels of manageability, security, isolation and I/O performance.

“Building virtualization technology into the processor enables Virtuozzo to deliver higher functionality,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. “As Intel adds more technology like VT-d into its processor and chipsets, hardware vendors, software vendors and ultimately end users benefit from more robust virtualization solutions.”

“Intel Virtualization Technology is helping customers achieve better utilization of their hardware investments," said Lorie Wigle, Director of Marketing for Intel’s Server Platforms Group. “By incorporating support for Intel Virtualization Technology, SWsoft delivers OS-level virtualization which improves application compatibility and reliability.”

The SWsoft Virtuozzo product release with VT support is scheduled for later this year. Virtuozzo VT-d support will follow in conjunction with platform availability.

In addition to the close technology collaboration efforts between the two companies, Intel Capital is also an investor in SWsoft.

Virtualization Simplification
The proliferation of servers in the datacenter has led to increased complexity and costs. Virtualization helps to reverse this trend by dramatically reducing the need for adding physical servers (and their associated capital, power, software and management costs) by turning an existing single physical server into multiple isolated and secure virtual servers, enabling higher server utilization and availability.

Virtuozzo virtual servers perform and execute as independent servers with their own memory, I/O, configuration files, users and applications running on a single operating system. Virtuozzo management tools provide unified management of thousands of virtual servers on hundreds of physical servers.

    However, a legitimate criticism has been that there's very little transparency in Microsoft's signing process. Some people have waited for significant periods of time before being receiving a response. A large part of this is simply that demand has been greater than expected, and Microsoft aren't in the best position to review code that they didn't write in the first place.

  • YaST Team: Highlights of YaST development sprint 32
    One of the known limitations of the current installer is that it’s only able to automatically propose an encrypted schema if LVM is used. For historical reasons, if you want to encrypt your root and/or home partitions but not to use LVM, you would need to use the expert partitioner… and hope for the best from the bootloader proposal. But the new storage stack is here (well, almost here) to make all the old limitations vanish. With our testing ISO it’s already possible to set encryption with just one click for both partition-based and LVM-based proposals. The best possible partition schema is correctly created and everything is encrypted as the user would expect. We even have continuous tests in our internal openQA instance for it. The part of the installer managing the bootloader installation is still not adapted, which means the resulting system would need some manual fixing of Grub before being able to boot… but that’s something for an upcoming sprint (likely the very next one).

The Tinker Board also sports an integrated ARM-based Mali T764 graphics processor (GPU).
