SW Soft releases OpenVZ
18 January 2006 13:02

SWsoft today announced the release of OpenVZ. From the OpenVZ website:

"OpenVZ is an Operating System-level server virtualization solution, built on Linux. OpenVZ creates isolated, secure virtual private servers (VPSs) or virtual environments on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each VPS performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server; VPSs can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files . . . The OpenVZ project is an open source community project supported by SWsoft and is intended to provide access to the code and ultimately for the open source community to test, develop and further the OS virtualization effort. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may evolve into the Virtuozzo product offering. We encourage the community to access, use, develop and comment on the software and references on this site."

Sounds like they're following RedHat's lead with the Fedora project. I see this as a win-win situation. The community gets some very nice virtualization software, and SWSoft gets the improvements that filter back up from the community. The RedHat "flavor" of Linux has only gotten better since the Fedora Project happened. Fedora Linux is leaps ahead of where RedHat left off with RH9. I hope the same happens with OpenVZ.

NewsForge also has a story on the release.
