Another great company has jumped on board to help support Seattle Mind Camp 4.0 - this time, it’s Parallels, Inc. We are sure that many of our attendees are familiar with , but if you aren’t, here’s a synopsis:

Parallels, Inc., an SWsoft company, builds powerful, user-friendly, cost-effective server and workstation virtualization solutions for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. The company is best known for its Parallels Desktop for Mac product, which was the first solution to allow Mac and Windows applications to run side-by-side, at the same time, on any Intel-powered Mac.  The product’s newest version, Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac, is a significant upgrade to the award-winning desktop virtualization product that already powers more than half a million Macs worldwide. Since its launch one year ago, Parallels Desktop for Mac has been recognized with MacWorld Magazine’s “Editor’s Choice” Award (the “Eddy”), PC World Magazine’s “Innovation of the Year” Award, and was the first non-Apple product to ever win the MacWorld Magazine Reader’s Choice Award. Parallels Desktop for Mac was also named “Best in Show” at the 2007 MacWorld Expo and in May 2007 was ranked #6 and a “Reader Favorite” on PC World Magazine’s “100 Best Products of 2007” list.

The guys from Parallels will be on hand to talk about their product, and virtualization in general.
