Virtualization company moves wares to Windows

SWsoft, a company that lets a Linux server be subdivided into independent partitions, is ready to begin testing a Windows version of its product.

The software, called Virtuozzo, subdivides a single copy of an operating system so it looks like several. The software chiefly has appealed to companies that host low-traffic Web sites. Virtuozzo gives those companies a way to share servers but also offer customers some advantages of independent machines.

To date, SWsoft has sold Virtuozzo only for Linux servers. A Windows version is currently in private beta testing, with broader testing scheduled to begin Nov. 22, and general availability scheduled for January, the company said.
