U Cambridge Computer Laboratory - Xen virtual machine monitor: "Xen is a virtual machine monitor for x86 that supports execution of multiple guest operating systems with unprecedented levels of performance and resource isolation. " It's open source.  OS's must be modified to run under it.  Interesting comparison of performance vs. vmware and user mode linux, and an Oct 2003 academic paper.  Running PostgreSQL or Apache specmarks, vmware runs under 50% of raw Linux and Xen runs 90%.  8:01:44 AM  permalink  

Plex86 - An x86 Virtual Machine: "Plex86 is an OSS virtual machine project for x86. It can be used on its own to run Linux VMs using lightweight VM technology, or in conjunction with the bochs emulator as an accelerator to run non VM-friendly OSes."  Last activity mid-2003.  7:52:31 AM  permalink
