IBM Offers Support for Xen

tk421 writes "Open source server virtualization got a boost this week with a new release from the Xen project and a new IBM commitment to help "harden" it.

Xen is a virtual machine application that allows users to run multiple operating systems concurrently on the same physical box. Each OS gets its resource and partition allocation from Xen, which claims to have a low overhead by virtue of its "para-virtualization" technique."
