With ConVirt 2.0, organizations considering Xen or KVM as open source alternatives to commercial virtualization platforms are no longer forced to compromise on manageability. ConVirt 2.0’s advanced automation, enterprise scalability and datacenter integration features now meet or exceed what’s available from proprietary platform vendors … and it’s all there without the vendor lock-in and excessive costs!
By choosing a combination of Xen and KVM with ConVirt 2.0 as the management solution, companies of all sizes can now reap the full benefits of server virtualization at the highest levels of flexibility and lowest total cost of ownership.
