   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 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.

   * Virtuozzo
