Support for Intel Virtualization technology?

hi

We're planning on buying a new EM64T or AMD64 based server for software development and QA purposes. The DL 380 G4 with dual-core CPUs is one option we've been looking into. Support for Intel Virtualization technology is something that we'd like to have in the server.

Do any of the ProLiant family servers support Intel Virtualization technology? If not, does anyone know when this technology will be supported by ProLiant servers?

Re: Support for Intel Virtualization technology?

According
http://news.com.com/Higher-end+dual-core+Xeons,+servers+arrive/2100-1006_3-5926219.html
new DL380 G4 include VT support.

"Paxville products introduce a new Intel hardware feature called Virtualization Technology (VT), code-named Vanderpool, which simplifies running multiple operating systems on the same server.
However, support for VT won't be enabled until software is more mature, Skaugen said. Then computer users could activate the feature through a hardware configuration process. "We're working with the industry to turn this capability on--once the software is ready--via a BIOS switch in the early 2006 time frame," he said.
For dual-processor servers, VT support will arrive with the Dempsey dual-core processor due in the first quarter of 2006. AMD plans to introduce its equivalent technology, code-named Pacifica, in the first half of 2006. "
