Alec Istomin, SWSoft
OpenVirtuozzo, Virtuozzo, Parallels and mores

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.

Further Information:

* OpenVZ

* Virtuozzo

* Parallels
