Parallels Server for Mac is a server virtualization product built for the Mac OS X Server platform and is developed by Parallels, Inc., a developer of desktop and server virtualization software. This software allows users to run multiple distributions of Linux, Windows and FreeBSD server applications alongside Mac OS X Server on Intel-based Apple hardware.
Parallels Server for Mac was in development for more than a year before its alpha stage was demoed at MacWorld 2008 and the product was officially released on June 17, 2008. While in beta, Parallels Server for Mac did not allow running Mac OS X Server in a virtual machine; however, Apple eased up on its licensing restrictions before Parallels Server for Mac’s GA release to allow running Mac OS X Leopard Server in a virtual machine as long as that virtual machine is running on Apple hardware.
