Parallels Server for Mac

Parellels on Tuesday formally announced the availability of Parallels Server for Mac, software that the company claims to be the first server-level virtualization tool for Intel-based Macs. Parallels Server offers the company's hypervisor-based virtualization techniques for Macs running Mac OS X Leopard Server, and can serve a multitude of Leopard Server-, Windows- and Linux-based virtual machines. Parallels Server is currently available from the company's website for $1000.

Parallels Server offers virtual support for four-way Symmetric Multi-processing, allowing users to assign up to four virtual cores to a machine for improved performance. It includes support for ACPI BIOS, 32GB of physical memory, Intel VT-x technologies, and several other advanced features for improved performance over the client version.

A fully scriptable multiclient management console allows users to manage virtual and physical servers locally or remotely, while the console's APIs are completely open, scriptable with Python.

In addition, Parallels Server includes an integrated toolset to enhance and simplify the environment, and a software development kit, allowing vendors to integrate Parallels into their products.

    oh yay...

    ...cuz parallels works so good.

    i paid for that stuff, and i reverted to bootcamp. not saying it's easy for them, but too cumbersome to deal with if you've actually got stuff to do.
