Red Hat VP readies virtualisation roadmap

,----[ Quote ]
| Now virtualisation is run on somewhere between six to eight percent of 
| servers, we think in the next two years that will be 90 percent of servers 


An interview with Alan Pope

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, it’s that time again folks–time for another Ubuntu Community 
| Interviews. We have a special interview this time around. Alan Pope, 
| sometimes known as Popey, is a systems administrator, an Ubuntu Member, a 
| member of the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Membership Council (as am 
| I…). Departing from our tradition in these interviews, he is someone who does 
| not enjoy using web forums.     



Red Hat Takes Hypervisor Control Back From Citrix

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat announced two important moves this week; open sourcing of Red Hat
| Network Satellite, and their own virtualization hypervisor oVirt. Open
| sourcing RHN Satellite is fundamentally about showing the industry Red Hat is
| still the keeper of the open source flame but the real strategic move is the
| development of oVirt. oVirt is built upon Kernel Virtual Mode, or KVM, which
| is virtualization built right into the Linux operating system, and has been
| maturing over the past two years. Until now Red Hat's virtualization strategy
| has been built around open source Xen, much like other players such as Oracle
| and Sun Microsystems.
| When Citrix took over Xen, it created a sticky situation for vendors
| depending on the Xen open source software for their virtualization
| strategies.


No Recession at Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| It is flattering to be mentioned, Mr. Whitehurst said, but he noted that 
| corporate customers and the industry benefit from what he called Red 
| Hat’s “Switzerland status” — not being a province of one of the major powers 
| in the technology industry.
