To expand the market reach of its virtualisation and cloud technologies
Open Source vendor Red Hat has announced that its Enterprise Virtualisation portfolio of products has moved into beta and is on track for final delivery later this year.
The move comes as a part of the company’s strategy to offer services to expand the scope and market reach of its virtualisation and cloud technologies.
Earlier in February, the company announced its plans to deliver Enterprise Virtualisation portfolio featuring server, client and management products to enable adoption of virtualisation across the enterprise.
The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation portfolio builds upon the integrated virtualisation technology featured in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system.
Red Hat claims that the products by sharing its hardware and ISV ecosystem would offer customers operational choice while expanding the market adoption of virtualisation.
Gary Chen, research manager of enterprise virtualisation software at IDC, said: Red Hat’s virtualisation strategy, announced last February, outlined a new standalone hypervisor coupled with server and desktop virtualisation management products. It is encouraging to see Red Hat advancing its virtualisation technology with this beta announcement.
