Virtuozzo for Windows Raises the Virtualization Standard for Windows Servers with Near-Zero Overhead, Full SMP Support, Robust Resource Management, Complete Tools and Rapid ROI

Herndon, VA — June 29, 2005 – Today, SWsoft, an established leader in server automation and virtualization software, announced the general availability of Virtuozzo for Windows. Virtuozzo is a high performance server virtualization solution that creates multiple isolated Virtual Private Servers (VPSs) on a single physical server to share hardware, software licenses and management with maximum possible efficiency.

“By offering both Windows and Linux support, Virtuozzo delivers a high performance, multi-platform server virtualization solution,” said Serguei Beloussov, Chairman and CEO, SWsoft.  “Our commitment to quality for this release included four complete beta cycles spanning one year, extensive stability testing and dozens of early adopters in production making it ready for mission critical production environments.  In the future, Virtuozzo will evolve to include additional operating system support, next-generation Intel and AMD technologies, and high availability clustering and failover solutions.”

“We evaluated every major virtualization solution on the market and turned to Virtuozzo mainly because of its class-leading performance and return on investment,” said Barry LaLone, Server Platform Architect, Jack Henry & Associates.  “With Virtuozzo for Windows, we were able to enhance our availability and redundancy while significantly decreasing our number of servers.  We are currently pursuing additional leverage of Virtuozzo within our production environments.”

"Worldwide revenues for virtual environment software, the aggregate market containing virtual machine software, grew nearly 25% between 2003 and 2004," said Dan Kusnetzky, IDC's VP of system software research.  "Virtualized environments supported on high-volume, powerful, and yet, relatively low cost 32- and 64-bit hardware can help organizations reduce costs in some important areas while still allowing them to implement IT-based solutions offering real business value."
