Intel turns on VT for Paxville Xeon processors

Posted on Tuesday, February 07 2006 @ 20:43:29 CET by

Intel issued a BIOS upgrade yesterday for system builders that use Xeon MP 7000 processors for servers that have four or more sockets. This BIOS update activates Intel's Virtualization Technology on the Paxville Xeon processors.
On the software side, Wigle said VMWare's new free entry-level sever will support Intel's virtualization technology, as will the company's existing GSX product. Other products that will support Intel's technology are Microsoft's forthcoming Virtual Server 2005 and Novell's Xen 3.0, she said.

"We're feeling pretty good about the ecosystem for hardware-assisted virtualization," she said.

Intel's virtualization technology, which also will ship in processors for single- and dual-socket servers mid year, seeks to shift some of the heavy-lifting necessary to run multiple operating systems on one server from software to the processor. Intel said servers using its hardware-assisted virtualization technology perform virtualization more efficiently as well as enable 64-bit guest operating support in VMWare.
