Is Microsoft buying missing features from virtuozzo?

From this info

The statement seems to imply that Microsoft will embed in Windows Server 2008 the OS virtualization technology Virtuozzo, with an OEM agreement.

Does this mean that Microsoft buys th following missing features?

- Dynamic Resource Allocation - CPU, memory, network, disk and I/O can be changed without re-booting.

- Live Migration - Business continuity capabilities including live migration ensure data is available and recoverable.

Maybe they put more features from virtuozzo

8 years later the way goes in the direction of Containers , as now docker Comes up.

As Microsoft did not buy swsoft(parallels) in 2008,  they now come up with Windows nano Server next year.

Interessting to see that virtuozzo has both virtual machine and Windows Container in one product.

Two open source projects were just announced by the Cloud-Native Apps group: Project Photon and Project Lightwave. Both of these projects will be foundational elements for running Linux containers and supporting next-generation application architectures
