SWsoft to Package Virtualization with SUSE Linux Enterprise
SWsoft today announced it will deliver its award-winning Virtuozzo server virtualization software bundled with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 from Novell.

SWsoft will take a standard distribution of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and add the Virtuozzo software to deliver one integrated solution to customers. As a result, customers will have another choice for virtualization that leverages SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, the world's most interoperable open platform for mission-critical computing.

"This is an important step forward for operating system virtualization to be offered together with one of the most popular enterprise-class Linux distributions in the world," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. "We are pleased to partner with Novell to give customers ready access to an integrated virtualization solution and one place to turn for support."

"Novell is committed to offering a variety of virtualization choices," said Holger Dyroff, vice president of product management for SUSE Linux Enterprise. "Every day customers tell us they want to lower costs and improve server utilization through virtualization with SUSE Linux Enterprise. By creating a bundle with Virtuozzo to deliver through the SWsoft channel, we see this as an opportunity to expand our customer base."

SWsoft plans to make the Virtuozzo and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 bundle available worldwide in the second quarter. It will run on servers using X86, AMD64, EM64T and Itanium processors. Support for the software bundle will be provided by SWsoft and backed up, as necessary, by Novell for all the unmodified components of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

According to a September 2006 IDC report, Virtuozzo from SWsoft grew the fastest among all virtualization technologies. In a November report, Gartner Group said that operating system virtualization will become mainstream by 2010.

SWsoft is a Silver Level partner in Novell's PartnerNet Technology Partner program.

Virtualization Performance and Manageability
With SWsoft Virtuozzo, a single Linux operating system instance can be dynamically partitioned into multiple, highly-efficient and scalable virtual environments. Virtuozzo includes patented technology that enables density of up to hundreds of virtual environments on a single physical server.

Unlike virtual machines and hypervisors, Virtuozzo addresses the challenges faced by today's datacenters of operating system sprawl. Its unique architecture and management tools make it the ideal solution for provisioning, monitoring and managing virtualized server resources.
