[News] Overview of the Multitude of Virtualisation Options in GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Desktop Linux Virtualization Options

,----[ Quote ]
| For Linux users, it would need to be made clear that USB support does take 
| some configuration before it is ready to roll out of the box. Outside of this 
| concern, VirtualBox does provide the kind of environment that leaves many 
| people wondering why anyone even bothers with costly alternatives.   
| For my money...or lack there of, VirtualBox remains best suited for SoHo or 
| home users as it is just not stable enough for serious enterprise use, in my 
| honest opinion. It's close, but seeing new issues cropping up with each new 
| release leaves me thinking that most IT departments would rather see VMware 
| solutions in place over troubleshooting the latest broken function caused by 
| a VirtualBox update.

| Ulteo is an interesting company. Started by former MandrakeSoft developer
| Gael Duval, the company aims to make using your computer easier, regardless
| of whether you're using your computer. The company focuses on the development
| and delivery of open source web applications and storage.


Where are all the Virtual Desktops?

,----[ Quote ]
| With KVM being an open-source hypervisor (it’s included in the Linux kernel),
| the real opportunity for revenue is SolidICE. We’ve been hearing about the
| promise of virtual desktops housed in data centers for quite some time now,
| but how real is the market?


Red Hat acquires Qumranet

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat Inc has acquired Qumranet Inc, the makers of SolidIce. The
| acquisition of Israel-based company adds a virtual desktop infrastructure
| (VDI) product to Red Hat's product portfolio. Red Hat paid $107 million for
| Qumranet. Qumranet's SolidICE product provides a kernel based virtual machine
| based around the open source KVM project which they also sponsor. The KVM
| project has been incorporated into the mainstream Linux kernel since version
| 2.6.20.


Hypervisor Visionary

,----[ Quote ]
| Benny Schnaider is a man who figures to have some influence in how
| competition in the virtualization market plays out. Schnaider is the CEO and
| co-founder of Sunnyvale, Ca.-based Qumranet Inc., which is the sponsor of the
| Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology. KVM is an open source
| alternative to the Xen hypervisor, which recently became an approved
| component of the Linux kernel.
| Endorsed by Red Hat Inc. and Canonical Ltd.'s Ubuntu -- as well as supported
| in hardware by Intel Corp., Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and IBM Corp. -- KVM
| handles both Linux and Windows guest operating systems without preference.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
