XenSource Releases Open-source Virtualization Solution


XenSource has released version 3.0 of its Xen virtualization software, the first major open-source offering to compete with the likes of VMware, Scalent and SWsoft.

At the same time, it also produced its first commercial offering, XenOptimizer, for managing virtualized deployments.

Virtualization allows multiple instances of an operating system to run on a single machine, with cost and management benefits for system administrators. Xen’s system is designed to offer high performance for large numbers of operating system instances, with the shortcoming that operating systems have to be modified to run with the Xen virtual machine monitor (called a hypervisor).
