SWsoft goes Parallels, what it means for OpenVZ

SWsoft, sponsor of the OpenVZ project, has recently announced that it will adopt "Parallels" as a new corporate name moving into next year. So, you might ask what what does this mean for OpenVZ?

Absolutely nothing. We will keep doing what we do, providing new releases, fixing bugs, supporting our users and remain focused on integrating containers virtualization technology into the mainstream Linux.

Separate from the company name change, you'll see us slowly cease using the terms "VE" (virtual environment) and "OS-level virtualization". The terms commonly used in the industry are "containers" and "contaners-type virtualization" -- and we are already using those.

Remember: a VPS is a VE is a container.
