Xen vs. KVM: Verdict still out on dueling hypervisors

,----[ Quote ]
| Although Red Hat promised its customers to retain Xen in 
| the OS through at least the end of RHEL 5 and to provide 
| support for several years thereafter, Red Hat said its 
| future development would focus on KVM. Today, KVM is 
| included as a hypervisor along with Xen in the latest RHEL 
| 5.4 release. Customers are free to choose one or the other 
| as part of the installation process and, essentially, 
| encouraged to experiment.


Head to the Cloud for Storage with Linux and DRDB

,----[ Quote ]
| While some say the cloud doesn't perform well enough and 
| isn't stable enough, others say it is perfect for their 
| usage model. Why not take advantage of such a scalable 
| architecture? It can make a great place to "stuff" data, 
| such as backups.



Virtualization tips total-cost scales for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Virtualization may offer a significant advantage to Linux in
| the decade-old debate over Linux vs. Windows total cost of
| ownership (TCO). A new Gabriel Consulting Group survey (PDF) of
| mostly mixed-environment (that is, Windows and Linux)
| enterprises reveals significantly higher adoption of
| virtualization technology, with all the cost savings that go
| with it: less money spent on hardware and licensing fees.


Linux and Virtualization Will March Forward Together

,----[ Quote ]
| It's also worth noting that if you don't think of IBM as a
| company focused on Linux, think again. Sutor specifically
| mentions mainframes in his quote, which IBM has never given up
| on in the age of the PC, and the company's Linux and
| virtualization strategies are very tied to that high-margin
| portion of its business. IBM is also one of the biggest
| contributors to the Linux kernel, as seen in the chart in this
| post.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
