Momentum Grows for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced momentum for the adoption of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization by North American channel partners as part of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Accelerator Program. Launched in June 2010, the Program has driven the adoption of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization portfolio through training and support of virtualization-certified Red Hat channel partners.   

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is an end-to-end virtualization solution designed to enable pervasive datacenter virtualization and significantly enhance capital and operation efficiency. Red Hat introduced Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers in November 2009 and debuted Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops as part of the product portfolio’s 2.2 update, released in June 2010. Including both a hypervisor based on Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology and management tools, the portfolio has been adopted globally by enterprises crossing a broad spectrum of industries.

“We brought Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to market to deliver new levels of choice to customers who desired a virtualization solution that could deliver high performance, scalability and security at an affordable price,” said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. “These features contribute to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization’s momentum and adoption worldwide.”

“As a long-time Red Hat channel partner, we welcomed the introduction of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to the market. We’ve experienced strong interest from our largest clients that are currently using other platforms as Red Hat gains momentum as an excellent UNIX alternative. The virtualization market has finally reached a point where it’s no longer just a nice-to but a got-to-have and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization fits this need,” said Bradley Brodkin, president at HighVail Systems in Toronto, Canada. “We’re excited to have expanded our partnership with Red Hat in gaining virtualization certification.”

"Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is an exceptional virtualization platform combining the familiarity and economics of an open source Linux environment with the reliability of the Red Hat brand," said Donn Bullock, vice president of Virtualization and Cloud Computing at Mainline Information Systems. "Through the capabilities of our Mainline Virtualization Practice, we are able to deliver customized configurations for our enterprise customers, leveraging this high-performance, scalable and cost-effective alternative from the leader in Linux solutions."

"We're excited to be one of the first Red Hat partners to gain Red Hat virtualization certification. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization leapfrogs VMware and other virtualization platforms by inheriting all the enterprise-grade characteristics of Red Hat Enterprise Linux,” said Erik Wallin, chief operating officer for Shadow-Soft. "As a long-time Red Hat partner, we welcomed the introduction of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization because it provides our customers with industry-leading performance, scalability and lower total cost of ownership compared to other virtualization solutions in the marketplace."

“We’ve experienced great demand for a cost-effective alternative to VMware and it seems that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization would fit this need,” said Vikram Kumar, managing director of Unilogik Systems in Vancouver, Canada. “We’re excited to have expanded our partnership with Red Hat in gaining virtualization certification and market penetration in the virtualization sector.”

“As a Red Hat Advanced Business Partner we have found that Red Hat's virtualization offering stands up very well against VMware and other competitive solutions. Our experience shows that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization meets and often exceeds the demanding needs of our enterprise and telecom customers. Scalability and price performance set it apart from the pack. When we combine the strengths of our Red Hat partnership, commitment and our decades of experience in the virtualization and consolidation arena we effectively help our customers minimize any perceived business risks associated with choosing a Red Hat virtualization offering,” said George Vesnaver, vice president, Business Development and Partner at Zinc Solutions.
