"Hoping to leverage its success on the desktop, VMware is bringing its multiple-OS technology to the server field with two new products designed for corporate and enterprise users."

"VMware technology allows multiple OSes to run simultaneously on the same Intel-based machine, so a user could boot Linux and then run Windows applications on another virtual PC."

"The two products, VMware GSX Server and VMware ESX Server, will allow servers to support multiple operating systems on the same Intel-based machine, similar to VMware for the desktop. All VMware products take advantage of 'MultipleWorlds' technology, which is a software layer that sits between the Intel processor and the operating system. This allows a VMware PC to run totally within software."
