Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Now with HP VirtualSystem VS2 Speeds Virtualization to Increase Performance
RALEIGH, NC – December 6, 2012 – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced – in line with the global availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 – that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is 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.
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 hundreds of 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 today from HP.
Paul Cormier, president, Products and Technologies, Red Hat
“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.”
Scott Farrand, vice president, Infrastructure Servers and Software, HP
