More on Virtualisation

I had written briefly about Virtualisation and the different avtaars currently available.

I recently found this article comparing the four leading Virtualisation techniques on Linux.

Although I had covered the popular ones like Vmware , VirtualBox and Xen, I missed out on Qemu and Parallels.

Speaking of Xen, Citrix, appears to be in a dead sprint to remove any and all value from open source, virtualisation buzz, etc. that it may have acquired when it bought XenSource.

Meanwhile, it is reported that Ubuntu is has already dropped Xen in fabour of KVM for it’s virtualisation engine.

Have you tried any of the Virtualisation softwares ?

Do let me know which one you prefer for running your Virtual machines.
