Parallel's Virtuozzo containers surpass 10,000 (mt) Virtual Environments

One of the largest virtualization deployments in the world surpassed 10,000 virtual environments using Parallels Virtuozzo Containers virtualization software. It began seven years ago at (mt) Media Temple, the Los Angeles-based service provider that hosts 200,000 website domains worldwide and includes clients such as ABC/Disney, Diesel, Nike, Qantas Airways, Sony and Starbucks.

When (mt) Media Temple started looking at virtualization technology, it evaluated everything that was available – virtual machines, para-virtualization, and container-based virtualization. Uptime and reliability were absolutely critical, along with the ability to handle unexpected spikes in traffic without interruptions or degradation to service. Another priority was applying software patches and updates efficiently.

These factors, combined with easy-to-use server management tools and the capability to dynamically manage workloads, made Parallels Virtuozzo Containers the clear choice for (mt) Media Temple and its customers.
Using the Parallels virtualization software and some 1,000 HP ProLiant servers running Linux, (mt) Media Temple leverages high virtual environment density on ProLiant servers without sacrificing their individual performance. (mt) Media Temple makes extensive use of the Virtuozzo template feature to add hundreds of customers per month using "one mouse click" provisioning or upgrading.

"We knew virtualization was going to be the future and banked on it as the best way to meet our customer commitments and keep pace with our rate of growth," said Demian Sellfors, CEO of (mt) Media Temple.
