Virtualisation Interoperability Pact by Microsoft and RedHat

Monday, February 23, 2009

Well the two Giants, Microsoft and Red Hat who were strong contenders who compete with each other and who were totally against to each other strategies , Now they are providing solutions by supporting each other????? Sounds Interesting so here is the story...

Red Hat and Microsoft customers will now have the ability to run Microsoft Windows Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual servers on either host environment with configurations that will be tested and supported by both virtualisation and operating system companies.

Actully this will happen by each company will accept virtualization validation/certiication programme and will gonna provide tech support for their combined server or mutual server virtualisation customers. These companies said that The reciprocal validations will allow customers to deploy heterogeneous, virtualised Red Hat and Microsoft solutions with confidence.

“The world of IT today is a mixture of virtualised and non-virtualised environments. Red Hat is looking to help our customers extend more rapidly into virtualised environments, including mixed Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows Server environments,” said Mike Evans, vice president, corporate development, Red Hat. “Red Hat listened when our customers asked us to provide interoperability between our respective guest and host virtualisation solutions. We are excited to announce these agreements today as the result of our collaboration with Microsoft.”

There are some key things which need to be considered given by redhat

Red Hat will validate Windows Server guests to be supported on Red Hat Enterprise virtualisation technologies;
Microsoft will validate Red Hat Enterprise Linux server guests to be supported on Windows Server Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server; and once each company completes testing, customers with valid support agreements will receive coordinated technical support for running Windows Server operating system virtualised on Red Hat Enterprise virtualisation and for running Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtualised on Windows Server Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server.
