VirtualBox is a memory hog! Are there any other free virtualization platforms that use less memory and run on Unix?

(You): VirtualBox is a memory hog! Are there any other free virtualization platforms that use less memory and run on Unix?

(Vinay): try Sun xVM (Virtual machine) , i use it and I love it

(You): Thanks re Sun xVM, I’ll take a look at it (does that mean Sun has two separate VM servers: VirtualBox AND xVM?). Re saving state, how would that help me?

(You): Is Sun xVM really much better re memory usage?

———————-

(Deniz): virtual pc and vmware

(You): Is vmware and virtualpc really low memory usage?

(Deniz): maybe vmware but i’m not sure about virtual pc.

(You): Thanks… I think I may just need to get a more powerful server, sigh.
