Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 optimal auf SAP-Lösungen abgestimmt

Ab sofort ist Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 für den Einsatz mit SAP-Lösungen zertifiziert.

Red Hat, der weltweit führende Anbieter von Open-Source-Lösungen, hat seine aktuelle Virtualisierungssoftware von SAP zertifizieren lassen. Unternehmen können Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 als Fundament ihrer SAP-Lösungen einsetzen und diese in virtuellen Umgebungen im eigenen Rechenzentrum oder in der Cloud betreiben. Details dazu erläuterte Irfan Khan, Senior Vice President und Chief Technology Officer bei Sybase, ein SAP-Unternehmen, in seiner Keynote auf dem Red Hat Summit 2012 am 26. Juni in Boston.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization bietet umfassende Funktionen zur Virtualisierung von Servern und Desktopsystemen und ist die erste vollständig an Open-Source-Prinzipien ausgerichtete Virtualisierungsplattform; die aktuelle Version 3.0 ist seit Januar 2012 verfügbar. Unternehmen profitieren durch die enge Abstimmung der Virtualisierungsplattform mit den SAP-Applikationen und können anspruchsvolle Lösungen mit einer Vielzahl von Anwendern aufbauen und betreiben – und dies mit einer zertifizierten Open-Source-Virtualisierungsplattform.

Zusätzlich zur aktuellen Zertifizierung erzielte Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 mit seinem Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) Hypervisor in zwei Two-Tier-SAP-Sales-and-Distribution (SD)-Standard-Benchmarks zusammen mit SAP 6.0 sehr gute Performancewerte. Details dazu sind unterhttp://www.sap.com/benchmark verfügbar. Im ersten Benchmark lief Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 auf einem IBM System x3850 (1) und im zweiten auf einem Cisco UCS B230 M2 Blade Server (2).
