RALEIGH, N.C. - —
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Swedish internet company Voddler has standardized its movie service on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. Voddler has also selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Network Satellite as the basis for its new infrastructure, providing the company with a centralized and scalable server platform.
Voddler offers its customers a wide variety of movies on-demand, and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization will enable the company to virtualize its web servers responsible for the movie service and the database servers containing all of its film titles.
"The powerful combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization made Red Hat the obvious solution to virtualize our key business-critical systems," said Roger Kemmler, IT manager at Voddler. "Red Hat's subscription-based model will help us support our infrastructure as we grow and launch the service in new markets. For this we require a stable and secure platform that is cost-effective, centrally administered and extremely scalable. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization meets all of those criteria."
Voddler continually updates its catalogue of film titles and its growing customer base is using the service more frequently, which means the demand on web server and database capacity is continually increasing. A key requirement for Voddler is to have the flexibility to scale the server platform and redistribute resources to meet the demand for increased capacity. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization allows Voddler to consolidate and increase the effectiveness of its physical infrastructure by using features such as live migration and dynamic resource scheduling to help ensure that the physical systems are used close to their maximum capacity.
Red Hat Network Satellite, a systems management tool, helps Voddler to quickly and easily configure and maintain the virtualized servers running on the new Red Hat platform.
Consultancy EnjoyIT, a Red Hat Ready Partner, is providing support for the project implementation and is also acting in an advisory role.
