NYLUG Presents: Alex Istomin on Virtualization Alternatives: OpenVirtuozzo, Virtuozzo, and Parallels
(This is a recording of a past meeting from December 2007.) Unless you've been to Mars and back the past couple of years, chances are that you've heard something about virtualization. It is one of the hottest trends in technology right now, yet market adoption is still in its early stages. "Virtualization" is not however, a generic term that defines every type of technology. "Containers," "hypervisors," "paravirtualization" and "OS virtualization" are distinct approaches – each having its own application and strength. Please join us on Wednesday evening as NYLUG.org continues its exploration of virtualization technologies. Alec Istomin from SWSoft will cover the virtualization landscape and discusses technologies outside of VMware. In addition to Virtuozzo and Parallels from SWSoft, he will also review Sun containers, Microsoft's upcoming Viridian, and open source offerings including Xen, KVM and OpenVZ. Alec will also present a demonstration of Virtuozzo/OpenVZ and open the floor up to questions.
