zerovm logo Rackspace announced on Monday that they have acquired ZeroVM. ZeroVM is a lightweight open source hypervisor created by LifeStack.

 

According to the Rackspace blogpost, ZeroVM helps break down barriers between compute and storage. It increases speed of access while decreasing latency by moving the app to the data rather than moving the data to the app.

Rackspace believes that the future of computing will be smaller, lighter, and faster. Rackspace sees a potential in ZeroVM and the community around it.

Up to now, it is unclear what Rackspace is planning for ZeroVM. ZeroVM was designed for the cloud and it only virtualizes part of the server that are required to do work.
