,----[ Quote ]
| CohesiveFT (http://www.cohesiveft.com), the leader in automated software 
| assembly, today announced it has partnered with ElasticHosts Ltd. 
| (http://www.elastichosts.com), the second European cloud infrastructure and 
| the world's first public cloud based upon KVM (the native Linux 
| virtualization platform). As a result, users are now able to deploy virtual 
| servers to ElasticHosts' cloud infrastructure via CohesiveFT's Elastic Server 
| on-demand service. Elastic Server is an automated "factory" that allows IT 
| professionals to assemble, deploy, and manage virtual servers using a simple 
| point-and-click interface. Beginning today, customers can assemble custom 
| Enterprise-class servers for deployment to ElasticHosts' European cloud 
| computing infrastructure. Free trials are available for both ElasticHosts 
| cloud infrastructure and CohesiveFT's Elastic Server factory, allowing 
| customers to test drive the joint solution.

| If the Linux virtualisation space wasn't heated enough, the open source 
| hypervisors Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) and Xen are now duking it out for 
| independent developer interest, according to Xen hacker Simon "Horms" Horman.  
| Horman is attending this year's linux.conf.au conference in Hobart while 
| remaining close to his day job as a senior Linux developer at VA Linux 
| Systems Japan K. K, but based in the Sydney office.

| Asked by CBR when Red Hat will be able to offer the KVM technology as part of
| Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the firm’s president and CEO Jim Whitehurst said it
| is “highly likely” that it would be during calendar 2009 but would not be
| drawn further.
