HERNDON, Va., March 30, 2006 – SWsoft announced today that its leading operating system level server virtualization software, Virtuozzo, has been named a finalist for a LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award in the server virtualization category.
“We’re very gratified by this recognition of our product, which is battle-tested with thousands of installations around the world during the past six years,” said
Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. “Our virtualization technology has unmatched performance and scalability, built-in zero downtime migration, and the industry’s best automation tools and management capabilities.”
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.
Virtuozzo will be featured at SWsoft's Booth # 302. Winners will be announced in a ceremony at the LinuxWorld Boston 2006 event on Wednesday, April 5 at 12:30 p.m, at the Boston Convention & Exposition Center.
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 management tools provide unified management of thousands of virtual environments on hundreds of physical servers.
