VirtualBox. 5 open source virtualisation technologies to watch - xen, virtualisation, virtualbox, OpenVZ, open source, Linux, Lguest, kvm, hypervisor. With virtualisation now a mainstream technology for most large businesses, the big players like EMC (VMWare), IBM and Microsoft are investing heavily in proprietary options for running multiple guest operating systems on a single machine. In addition to the commercial products, there is a vibrant open source virtualisation ecosystem that CIOs can consider for public and private cloud infrastructure.

In this edition of five open source things to watch, we take a look at virtualisation software that can consolidate infrastructure without shrinking the savings. Open Source - Virtualization and Emulation. The Current State of Open Source Virtualization. We’ve started by looking back at a decade of Open Source virtualization, and in this second part of the series we’ll tackle today’s landscape (last updated in March 2008). The least you can say about the current state of Open Source virtualization is that the field is extremely diverse: different approaches in the virtualization area are all represented, with paravirtualization, OS virtualization and hardware-assisted virtualization in various colors and flavours.

Let’s start with paravirtualization: Xenmaster Ian Pratt released the 1.0 version of Xen somewhere in September 2003, it wasn’t till the Xen 2.0 release (around December 2005) that Xen adoption really started to accelerate. Ian announced the 2.0 release in November 2004 with support for both Linux 2.4, 2.6, FreeBSD and Live Migration support. Welcome to, home of the Xen® hypervisor, the powerful open source industry standard for virtualization.
