OpenVZ Adds Features

HERNDON, Va. -- The open source project, OpenVZ
( announces the availability of features in its operating system server virtualization software that include:

- Delivery of checkpointing and live migration support for IA64 processors, which brings a capability that no other open source operating system virtualization software offers. This allows system administrators to move virtual servers between physical servers without end-user disruption or the need for costly storage capacity.

- Network file system (NFS) support, which makes it possible to access network disk files from within OpenVZ virtual environments.

- VLAN (IEEE802.1Q) network standard support in virtual environments, so that every network packet can be tagged to some distinct network.

- Filesystem in userspace (FUSE) support, which allows, for example, for an FTP or SSH server to be presented like a file system within a virtual environment.
