Acquisition of Innotek fills gap in Sun’s virtualization offerings
Sun has acquired an open source desktop virtualization vendor called Innotek, which makes software targeted at developers who want to build, test and run applications on multiple operating systems.
The Innotek product VirtualBox “enables desktop or laptop PCs running the Windows, Linux, Mac or Solaris operating systems to run multiple, different operating systems side-by-side, switching between them with just a click of the mouse,” Sun officials stated in a press release. “This allows software developers to more easily build multi-tier or cross-platform applications, or power-users to take advantage of applications that may not be available for their base operating system of choice.”
