SWsoft Releases Virtuozzo 2.0, Bringing Mainframe-Inspired Functionality to Intel-Based Servers

January 10, 2002

New Technology Enables Decreased Data Center Operation Costs, Increased Scalability; Provides Performance Guarantees and Dedicated Server Capability at a Lower Price.



S. SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., January 10, 2001 - SWsoft, Inc., an advanced server and networking software technology company, today announced the release of Virtuozzoâ„¢ 2.0, an upgrade of the advanced 1.0 technology that brings mainframe-like functionality to commodity Intel-based architecture. Virtuozzo enables service providers the flexibility to offer service-level agreements (SLAs) and affordable dedicated server plans, in addition to giving Fortune 1000 enterprises server-consolidation capabilities.

Virtuozzo will replace virtual Web host technology, as it supports shared, dedicated and virtual private servers and affordably offers customers advanced and dedicated server capabilities, such as e-commerce and database functions. To the growing number of companies who are looking to establish or increase the sophistication of their Web presence, they get the full support of dedicated servers to host their business-critical applications at a much lower - closer to that of shared - price point.

Virtuozzo 2.0 is unique and comprised of the following features:
Multi-tenancy
Hundreds of customers can share a single, physical server, even though it appears to the user that they have their own dedicated environment.

Virtualization
Virtualizes CPU resources and appears to customers as a stand-alone, dedicated server

Resource management
Enables systems administrators to manage the customer resource levels and thus effectively offer and implement service-level agreements (SLAs) and quality of service guarantees

Clustering
Allows customers to transparently move their resources between servers, without affecting the quality of the network.

Virtuozzo 2.0 works with Intel-based commodity servers and allows companies of any size to run email, firewalls, domain name service (DNS) and other functionalities usually found only in the enterprise.

"Virtuozzo is the multi-tenancy technology behind our HSPcomplete solution and is the only solution designed to allow Web hosting companies the ability to manage their data center as a single resource serving hundreds of customers on a single, physical server," said Craig Oda, VP, Business Development, SWsoft. "As the Internet more deeply permeates the fabric of traditional business, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) will need a more sophisticated Web presence. Virtuozzo 2.0 surpasses the Virtual Web Host and enables Web hosting companies to offer a wide-range of shared and dedicated server capabilities, at lower price points."
