Next Fusion 2.0 beta to support Leopard Server

updated 03:35 pm EDT, Thu June 12, 2008

Fusion & Leopard Server

VMware has announced that the next beta version of Fusion 2.0, its Mac virtualization software, will officially introduce support for virtualizing Mac OS X Leopard Server. The company has been working on the project since January, following modifications to Apple licensing which allowed Leopard Server to be run in a virtual machine on a Mac. For end users, this should mainly permit running multiple servers for different networking tasks.

Alternately users can run combinations of Leopard, Windows and/or Linux server software, or again run multiple copies of Leopard, but with the purpose of testing different saved configurations. Each virtual machine supports dual-core processing and up to 8GB of RAM; VMware has yet to announce, however, when Fusion 2.0 Beta 2 will be released.
