Abstract As covered in a recent Queue article (“The Virtualization Reality,” December/January 2006), server virtualization is gaining steam on the merits of both cost savings and manageability. The article describes how today’s hardware has become so powerful, and in many cases underutilized, that it often makes economic and logical sense to get more bang for the buck by having one hardware configuration handle the processing for multiple operating systems running on a single hypervisor. Major players in that space include XenSource, VMWare, and Parallels. The latter two made news recently with upgrades to their desktop virtualization products, mainly targeted at users who wish to toggle between OS X and Windows.
