Operating Systems Go Virtual

As part of its ongoing mission to promote Linux on its servers, IBM last week said it would integrate Virtuozzo 2.5 server virtualization software from SWsoft Inc. on the Intel-based xSeries 300 line of machines. Virtuozzo lets system administrators partition Intel servers running Linux into isolated compartments, called virtual environments, which function independently as standalone servers. IBM says Virtuozzo software, priced at $1,000 for each physical server on which it's installed, has the ability to create up to 2,500 virtual environments on a single xSeries server.
