I don't own a Mac (yet), but it looks like the latest release of Parallels virtualization software, Parallels Desktop 4 for Mac, caused quite an excitement among the fans. I thought I'd share the links with you.
SWsoft, create of Virtuozzo Containers and Parallels Desktop, has just announced the availability of Parallels Server Beta.
Parallels Server is the first virtualization solution designed to run on Apple hardware, including Mac Pros and Xserves, and the first to run multiple copies of Mac OS X Server v10.5 Leopard on a single Apple computer. Parallels Server also runs on any x86 or 64-bit Windows or Linux-based server.
Parallels Server can be installed using the Parallels lightweight hypervisor, in which virtual machines run in tandem with a primary operating system, or 'bare metal', in which virtual machines run independently and are not dependent on a host operating system to function properly. At installation, users can choose to load Parallels Server in either the lightweight hypervisor mode or bare-metal mode. Parallels Server is the only virtualization product of any kind to afford users the flexibility to choose their implementation during installation.
