VMware To Add Support For Paravirtualized Linux OS
Gives Customers Broad Choice Of Supported Operating Systems
VMware announced plans to support paravirtualized Linux and Solaris x86 operating systems in future releases of VMware virtual infrastructure platform products — Workstation, GSX Server and ESX Server. With support for more than 60 x86-based operating systems, VMware platform products support the industry’s broadest set of operating systems. This broad support gives customers more choice when using virtualization to lower the cost of managing multiple operating system environments.
VMware is adding support for paravirtualized Linux operating systems as they become adopted in commercial operating system distributions across its virtual infrastructure platform products. Paravirtualized Linux operating systems are modified operating systems that are specifically optimized to run in a virtual environment. This gives customers the choice of running both unmodified and paravirtualized operating systems, with or without assistance from underlying processor technologies, concurrently on the same virtualization platform.
