Red Hat Takes Hypervisor Control Back From Citrix

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat announced two important moves this week; open sourcing of Red Hat
| Network Satellite, and their own virtualization hypervisor oVirt. Open
| sourcing RHN Satellite is fundamentally about showing the industry Red Hat is
| still the keeper of the open source flame but the real strategic move is the
| development of oVirt. oVirt is built upon Kernel Virtual Mode, or KVM, which
| is virtualization built right into the Linux operating system, and has been
| maturing over the past two years. Until now Red Hat's virtualization strategy
| has been built around open source Xen, much like other players such as Oracle
| and Sun Microsystems.
|
| When Citrix took over Xen, it created a sticky situation for vendors
| depending on the Xen open source software for their virtualization
| strategies.

Virtualization: Linux's killer app

| Think about it. Even Microsoft supports running Linux on its Virtual
| Server product. Why would it do that? Wouldn't an OS partitioning
| technology, such as that used by OpenVz or Sun Solaris, be more in
| keeping with the kind of homogeneous environments that Microsoft
| would like to see? Why would Microsoft invest its resources to
| support a virtual machine technology that can only open the
| door to Linux in the datacenter?
