OSNews, Generic OSes Red Hat and Novell, the two top Linux sellers, have only just begun building Xen virtualization software into their products. But they're already planning to add a higher-level option. Xen is a 'hypervisor' that lets a single computer run several operating systems simultaneously, using an idea called 'virtualization'. This enables companies to use a single server more efficiently - something that could save them money. Now 'containers', a higher-level virtualization approach that makes a single operating system look like many, is also getting traction.

The two are vastly different in technology and purpose. Your comparing apples to oranges. Both will have their place. And both are needed in Enterprise.

Yes, I totally agree. And that's why I precised: "when it comes to run linux on linux".

In this context, Xen loses interest over OpenVZ and VServer.
