Red Hat unveils new version of enterprise virtualization platform
Dec 19, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Red Hat, Inc., a provider of open source solutions, has announced the availability of Enterprise Virtualization 3.1, supported by HP VirtualSystem VS2.
HP VirtualSystem VS2 is a new converged system reference architecture designed to speed virtualization software deployment while maximizing performance and scale as organizations move to cloud computing, the company said.
HP has offered Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization subscriptions and support services on HP ProLiant servers since the launch of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 in January 2012.
Consulting, education and implementation services for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization are also available through HP. The HP VirtualSystem VS2 Reference Architecture for Red Hat is an enterprise-business, single-rack solution that is optimized for compute density. It is based on the HP BladeSystem C7000 Enclosure, HP ProLiant BL460c servers, HP 5800 Switch Series and HP LeftHand P4800 Storage for BladeSystem and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
The combined solution is designed to support virtual machines, and provides a base set of extended configurations and sizing for typical workloads for deployment optimization. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, including the new 3.1 update, is available worldwide from HP.
Paul Cormier, president, products and technologies, Red Hat, said, "Both from the standpoint of customer adoption and benchmark performance, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization on HP ProLiant servers is a winning combination. HP's support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization through subscription sales, services and practical solutions like the HP VirtualSystem, as well as their work on the core KVM technology, should resonate with customers building out their virtual infrastructure and preparing their move to the cloud."
