OpenVZ now available for Sun's UltraSPARC T1 processor

The OpenVZ project has announced that its open source virtualization software is now available for servers using Sun's UltraSPARC(r) T1 CoolThreads(TM) processor. The operating system-level server virtualization software technology helps increase server utilization rates. The software can be easily ported across different architectures and currently supports servers using x86, x86_64, IA64 and Power 64-bit processors.

With the power of Sun's UltraSPARC T1 processor, hardware is often under utilized. With virtualization technology, the server can effectively be split into many small ones, each running its tasks so that the whole server is utilized more efficiently. The OpenVZ project makes available templates that allow for almost instant provisioning of a virtual server. The software includes user tools that help automate management of virtual servers and comes with documentation and a knowledge base with helpful advice. The OpenVZ project serves the needs of the community developers, testers, documentation experts, and other technology enthusiasts who wish to participate in and accelerate the technology development process.
