WWDC: Parallels Server for Mac debuts

updated 02:00 pm EDT, Mon June 11, 2007

Parallels Server

Parallels is taking its virtualization software to Mac OS X Server for the first time, announcing and showing an alpha version of Parallels Server at Apple's WWDC (Worldwide Developer conference) currently underway in San Francisco. The tool will allow users to run Windows and Linux in virtual servers at the same time as Mac OS X Server, all at the same time, on the same Intel-powered Xserve. Officials will demonstrate the new package to the press at the Westin San Francisco Market Street (formerly The Argent Hotel) on Thursday, June 14th. They will also be demonstrating Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac, released last week.

    This huge

    This will make Xserves and macs even more attractive to IT and CIOs considering dabbling in macs.

    Now they will be able to partition Xserves to serve as servers for both Windows and mac clients/appllications.

    Companies that have to keep some legacy windows app support will be able to do that with a single set of servers and companies looking to dabble with macs will be able to have a rack mounted xserve that not only acts as a bridge to the existing Active Directory network for mac cients but it can expand their windows server capacity at the same time.

    All cool

    But whats the point of running them when the world's most advanced OS IS Mac OS X. I dont see any 'intelligent' human being installing Wincrap garbage on a xserve.
