Who delivers best-of-breed virtualization? [Red Hat]

You depend on choice in your data center. It keeps your costs down, it keeps vendors competing for your business and it accelerates the development of technology. The thought of losing this diversity of options sends shivers down your spine. But until recently server virtualization might have felt like a one-vendor world.

Red Hat to the rescue.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization offers a credible choice for virtualizing Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Microsoft Windows Server workloads.

Virtualization the open source way
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is more than just another choice for virtualization—it is a credible alternative in the virtualization world. The open source foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization gives you visibility into the entire virtualization stack. The source code for Red Hat’s hypervisor technology is freely available to anyone.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is sold through the same business model as all Red Hat products, with a yearly subscription model. Red Hat works collaboratively with the open source community, and aggregates, tests, hardens, and certifies the code for its enterprise solution. A subscription includes more than just the right to run the software, it includes around-the-clock support, updates, bug fixes, manageability, a robust certified ecosystem, and long-term stability at an affordable price. This model means we have to prove the value of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to our customers every day, or they choose not to renew. This gives customers more than just another choice. It gives them a seat at the development table and a chance to participate in their own success. [Read more…]
