Parallels Server beta 2

Parallels today announced it is offering Parallels Server beta 2 for public download, after positive feedback based on private testing. Parallels Server takes advantage of hypervisor-based virtualization techniques, and supports over 50 different x86 and x64 operating systems, including Windows Server 2008. The beta also features Parallels' toolsets for enhancing, transferring, and backing up the resident virtual machines. Parallels Server beta 2 is available from download from Parallels' website.

Parallels Server offers virtual support for four-way symmetric multi-processing, allowing users to assign up to four virtual cores to a virtual machine to provide enhanced performance under heavy workloads. Experimental support for Intel VT-d is included as well, which gives users the opportunity to assign hardware resources to specific virtual machines.
