Former Intel exec allies with virtualization firm
Richard Wirt, until last July a senior software executive at Intel, has become a paid advisor to virtualization software firm SWsoft, the company said Monday. "His role will include helping us develop business relationships to benefit our customers and our company," said SWsoft Chief Executive Serguei Beloussov.
SWsoft's Virtuozzo software, and the OpenVZ open-source project on which it's based, lets a single instance of Windows or Linux be divided into several separate partitions often called containers. Intel invested in SWsoft in 2005.
