A friend of mine told me about a new "breed" of routers from Cisco which have two "virtual machines" over the same physical hardware -- sort of a VMWare or Xen host with guests.

Does someone know about that, or had a practical experience with that new Cisco product?
I'm pretty sure this functionality is now in the current IOS XR releases for the CRS platform. I think there was talk about eventually porting some of the IOS XR features to the 12000 series, but I don't know what work has actually been done there, or if that included the routing context capabilities.
