The Zen Of Virtualization

It's been a while coming, but Xen 3.0, the open-source code that lets Intel servers be subdivided into multiple Linux or Windows virtual servers, made its debut last week. The 2.0 version didn't do Windows, just Linux and BSD Unix. Xen 3.0 goes into the hands of developers, who will kick the tires and clear up bugs before a "hardened" version gets released to business users in the first quarter of 2006. XenSource Inc. will add a management layer for handling sets of virtualized servers at that time. Virtualization is booming, and an improved open-source option should help that growth.
