Red Hat and IBM make Open Virtualization Advances into the EnterpriseMay 10, 2011 No Comments
Red Hat, Inc. is working together with IBM in order to design products and solutions based on KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) technology, the open virtualization choice for the enterprise. The companies have teamed up and are driving the adoption of open source virtualization technology through joint development projects and enablement of the KVM ecosystem.
Now, many more organizations are turning to virtualization in order to consolidate IT resources and reduce expenses. This new open approach to virtualization is proving beneficial and large enterprise clients have already begun to see the benefits of solutions that combine IBM hardware and software with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, using KVM technology. Two joint customers, the Brazilian Federal Highway Police (DPRF) and Cortal Consors, a division of BNP Paribas, have both witnessed major benefits by deploying Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization on IBM System x servers.DATA and ANALYTICS
