Parallels 4.0: For the new MAC, experimental 8-way SMP as well!

The release of the 4.0 version of Parallels’ Desktop for Mac on Nov. 11 comes a few months after VMware released the latest version of its Fusion software, which allows Windows and Linux operating systems to run along side the Mac OS X. The Parallels Desktop for Mac software, which is now available, retails for $79.99.

While virtualization technology has been traditional used by consumers for their Macs, the technology is increasingly important in the enterprise as more and Macs are finding their way into boardrooms and corner offices.

In this release, Parallels has included new features specifically designed for IT managers. For example, the new release of Parallel’s software allows up to 16 NICs (network interface cards) to work with each virtual machine. The software also allows an IT manager to boot a guest OS off the company’s network.

Parallels has also included support for Mac OS X Server 10.5 Leopard and experimental support for the upcoming Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard as guest operating systems in virtual machines. In addition, Parallels is offering Windows Server 2008 and 2003 support.

In this latest version of virtualization software for the Mac, Parallels has expanded the virtualization software’s ability to handle 64-bit guest operating systems. In addition, Parallels has added the ability to support 4-way SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) within each virtual machine, which allows the hardware to handle heavier workloads even in a virtual environment.

Parallels can also support experimental 8-way SMP in the 4.0 release.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
