AMD to present Pacifica - virtualization technology

Posted on Tuesday, Mar 08 2005 @ 17:53 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
By the end of the month AMD will give more details about its virtualization technology named Pacifica. This technology is similar to Intel's Virtualization Technology (previously called Vanderpool) and will make it easier to simultaneously run multiple operating systems.
"We're going to be releasing the specification for Pacifica publicly by the end of this month," said Margaret Lewis, AMD's senior software strategist, at a meeting last week. "Once the spec is out, we can have a lot of conversations about Pacifica versus other specs."
It isn't sure whether AMD's and Intel's virtualization technology will be compatible. More info at Cnet
