Parallels plans coverged virtualization by end 2008

What the converged means, I wouldn't know myself.

"By the end of 2008, you will be able to take a virtual machine and restart it as a container, and vice versa," said Beloussov. He explained that both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages for particular applications.

"In testing and development, the hypervisor approach is right, but for other workloads like consolidation, and operating software-as-a-service environments, containers are the best," he said.

But Butler Group senior research analyst Roy Illsley said it was not immediately obvious what benefits this might offer.

"If you look at enterprise servers from the likes of IBM, they use partitioning to divide up and micro-manage resources, and I'd guess what Parallels might be doing is trying to bring that kind of capability to the x86 server market," he explained.
