Parallels Server for Mac brings new features

Parallels on Wednesday introduced Server for Mac Bare Metal Edition, a new virtualization utility for Apple's Xserve. The software builds upon Parallels Server for Mac, initially launched in 2008, but with a new architecture that is claimed to provide the first "bare metal" hypervisor for Intel-based servers. The updated utility is said to offer improved performance, while allowing systems to be migrated without going completely offline.

Hypervisor virtualization allows administrators to create multiple isolated virtual machines, each simultaneously executing a different operating system, on the same physical server. Users can run Windows, Linux and Mac OS X side-by-side, helping to consolidate server resources or support legacy operating systems.

Parallels has yet to announce pricing and availability information for the Server for Mac update, although the current version carries a price of $1,250 for each license.
