The agreement will enable users to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same x86-based 64-bit computing platform by using Xen’s hypervisor virtualisation software.
The collaboration was announced at this week’s LinuxWorld conference in Boston and the first commercial solution will be available in the first half of this year.
The Xen hypervisor, is a x86 virtual machine monitor (VMM), which enables a single machine to run multiple operating systems efficiently while maintaining secure and defined resource isolation between them.
