SWsoft Virtuozzo Wins Award for Best Virtualization Solution at LinuxWorld

Filed under

Virtuozzo for Linux 3.0 with Zero Downtime Migration
Recognized for Product Excellence

BOSTON, LinuxWorld Expo, April 5, 2006 – Today, SWsoft Virtuozzo was announced the winner of the “Best Virtualization Solution” at LinuxWorld Expo. Virtuozzo is operating system level server virtualization software that turns a single physical server into multiple virtual environments – enabling maximum server performance and utilization.

“We are gratified by the recognition in the industry, which is testimony to the value delivered by our Virtuozzo product with its performance advantages and built-in zero downtime migration,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. “This is not an overnight success story since our virtualization technology is battle-tested with thousands of installations around the world during the past six years.”

Judged by a group of respected industry experts managed by LinuxWorld Magazine, the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Awards recognize product and service innovations by LinuxWorld exhibitors. There are 12 product categories, representing major areas of innovation in the Linux and Open Source community. The award was made today at the LinuxWorld Boston 2006 event at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center.

Based in Herndon, Virginia, SWsoft is an established, fast-growing leader in server automation and virtualization software. The proliferation of servers in the data center 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 environments, enabling maximum server utilization and availability.

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