Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 gecertificeerd voor op SAP gebaseerde productieomgevingen 

Amersfoort, 12 juli 2012 – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), leverancier van opensourceoplossingen, breidt de samenwerking uit met SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) op het gebied van virtualisatie. Door de samenwerking wordt de implementatie van SAP-applicaties op fysieke Red Hat-servers vereenvoudigd. 

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization biedt een uitgebreide oplossing voor server en desktop virtualisatie. Versie 3.0 die in januari 2012 is uitgebracht, is het eerste volledige open source virtualisatieplatform voor enterprises. Nu is Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization gecertificeerd voor zakelijke applicaties van SAP die draaien op Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Hiermee beschikken klanten over een schaalbaar virtualisatieplatform om het groeiend aantal workloads en gebruikers te ondersteunen evenals over compatibiliteit tussen Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization en het SAP-ecosysteem, allemaal gebaseerd op open source virtualisatietechnologie.

In twee two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standaard applicatie benchmarks bereikte Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization en zijn Kernel-gebaseerde Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor met daarop de SAP ERP 6.0 applicaties uitstekende resultaten. Deze resultaten werden bereikt door Red Hat Linux op KVM met IBM System x processors1 en met Cisco UCS systemen2 te gebruiken.

Beschikbaarheid

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 is per direct beschikbaar voor het gebruik met SAP-oplossingen.
