Boston Linux Meeting Reminder, tomorrow, Wednesday, December 15, 2010 Virtualization with OpenVZ

When: December 15, 2010 7PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: Virtualization with OpenVZ
Moderator: Eugene Gorelik - eugene.gorelik gmail com
Location: MIT Building E51, Room 325

An overview of OpenVZ, the open-source version of Parallels VM

OpenVZ is container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates
multiple secure, isolated containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on
a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring
that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes
exactly like a stand-alone server; a container can be rebooted
independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory,
processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration
files. For more information about the technology and how it differs from
the others like Xen, VMware etc., refer to:

OpenVZ is free open source software, available under GNU GPL.

OpenVZ is the basis of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, a commercial
virtualization solution offered by Parallels. OpenVZ project is
supported by Parallels
