Parallels is selling virtualization products and web hosting solutions. I was originally using a hosting package called Ensim, but Parallels bought Ensim over a while ago. Today, due to business growth, I need to expand my hosting capacity and to add an extra licence from Parakllels. > > As far as my other systems are concerned, (pen testing) I will reinstall > > them under Centos 5.2 in the coming weeks > > you dont need to reinstall to get from 5.0 to 5.2, if you do a yum > update, that will bring in all the updated packages.
