    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
