<p> <a href="http://www.parallels.com/">Parallels</a> (formerly SWsoft) has a 'bare-metal' server hypervisor in development, but this remains in <a href="http://www.parallels.com/products/server/wl/">beta testing</a> and is only properly available for the <a href="http://www.parallels.com/products/server/mac/">Apple Mac</a>. However, it does have a hypervisor alternative, in the form of <a href="http://www.parallels.com/products/virtuozzo/">Parallels Virtuozzo Containers</a> which takes a somewhat different approach to compared to VMware, Microsoft and Citrix products, yet delivers very similar results. </p>
<p> The open-source <a href="http://www.xen.org/">Xen</a> hypervisor has been around for a while now, mostly notably bundled with a variety of Linux distros, but has never had much impact. Even when the software was released as a commercial product and subsequently acquired by Citrix, it failed to win many hearts or minds. That could change with the launch of <a href="http://www.citrix.co.uk/English/ps2/products/product.asp?contentID=683148&ntref=hp_nav_UK">XenServer 5</a>, which addresses many of the shortcomings of previous versions, putting the Citrix hypervisor firmly in the production-quality ranks. </p>
<p> <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/vi/esx/esx3i.html">ESXi</a> is the latest version of VMware's industry-leading hypervisor. Although you can still buy its big brother, <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/vi/esx/">ESX Server</a>, ESXi is now the main front-line VMware hypervisor. Rather than choosing between ESX Server and ESXi, people should probably install ESXi and pick a suitable license. More detail on the differences between the two products are available on <a href="http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1006543">VMware's web site</a>. </p>
<p> Microsoft released the first production version of its <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/virtualization-consolidation.aspx">Hyper-V</a> hypervisor on 26 June. Supplied as part of the <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/os/0,1000001098,39348280,00.htm">Windows Server 2008</a> bundle, Hyper-V enables a single piece of server hardware to run multiple operating systems. Most people will use it to run several versions of Windows on the same server, but it could also be used to host Linux software, or just about anything else that runs on an x86-compatible CPU. However, organisations wanting to convert existing servers to run as virtual machines (VMs) or import VMs from other vendors' products will need to buy additional software. </p>
Virtual PC 2007 is a handy tool for running multiple operating systems. However, it's not without its limitations when running an older OS like Windows 3.1. Here's what it takes to get everything working.
ProxMox KVM/OpenVZ Virtualization Distro
By utilising the power of mobile computing with a cloud storage provider, you can (in theory) take your hard drive anywhere with you, with nothing more than a username and password.
This will be my first in a series (an "X = X +1" sort of series) where I'll be looking at virtualization. However, rather than look at the kind of virtualization where you inxstall and OS like Windows, Mac OS or Linux and then install an application that allows you to create virtual machines, I'm going to be looking at virtualization at a much lower level using VMware's ESX 3.5 and Infrastructure applications. I'm going to start off by looking at VMware ESX and taking you through the install process.

Popular with professional developers and others looking to test, debug and otherwise support software applications, <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/desktop/workstation.html">VMWare Workstation</a> is now in its sixth release with a raft of new and enhanced features aimed at further enhancing its appeal to that market. VMware Workstation is popular with developers for several reasons, not least of which is its wide platform support, with implementations available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of both Windows (desktop or server) and Linux. It can also host a wide range of 32-bit and 64-bit guest operating systems including most versions of Windows and Linux, along with less popular platforms such as Sun Solaris and even, for those who still need it, Novell NetWare.
The latest version of VMware Workstation is a worthy upgrade: It's familiar enough to use without diving into the manual, yet delivers a crop of new, useful features.
In a CIO Sessions interview, Graham Andrews, CIO of PricewaterhouseCoopers speaks to ZDNet Australia about new wireless technologies the company is deploying at the professional services firm.

XenServer still has a fair way to go in order to catch up to the current functionality already offered in VMWare and Microsoft's virtualisation solutions -- but it's quickly improving and is a lot more affordable.
Already hugely popular with developers and system testers, this latest version of VMWare Workstation has even more to appeal to the professional market.
Remote access software that is easy to install, has great features and most importantly, it just works.

This is an effective server virtualisation tool, now available as a free download. However, Linux support is limited, and overall it’s not quite a match for VMWare.
Just about any task involving multiple operating systems on a single computer can be accomplished using VMware Workstation 5, which adds valuable new features and also delivers performance enhancements.
VMware Workstation is a powerful virtual machine application that enables you to develop and test even the most complex networked server-class applications running on Windows, Linux or NetWare -- all on a single desktop.
