San Francisco based Linux dudes Red Hat announced a “Integrated Virtualization” strategy on Tuesday. This new tool should simplify deployment in a new virtualization environment. They claim this will allow customers to deploy resources at minimal cost while maximizing utilization.

“Conservative estimates show that servers typically operate at between 15 and 25 percent of CPU capacity, but with virtualization that could improved to 80 percent,” said Brian Stevens, CTO at Red Hat.

“Our customers, who already see Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the choice for lower cost of ownership, will be able to ride this next wave of virtualization to further reduce costs and increase operational efficiency. Red Hat’s strategy is to methodically target and reduce every cost driver associated with deploying IT infrastructure, we believe integrated virtualization will be a major milestone in this effort.”

Red Hat will tightly integrate virtualization capabilities with its operating system and ensure all aspects of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform, from management tools and installation to software management, will enable customers to deploy virtualized environments easily and effectively. Consistent with Red Hat’s open source model, the company will provide seamless integration and support for the Xen virtualization technology developed by the open source community. Specific details of the integrated virtualization initiative include:

A complete platform to implement server consolidation, reducing costs and improving service levels.

A comprehensive development and QA environment, which allows developers to substantially reduce the time and complexity of writing and testing code on diverse target systems.

Support for hardware abstraction, which allows IT managers to reap the benefits of the latest hardware using existing software stacks, without the expense of extensive qualification and migration processes.

“Virtualization, a technology with it’s roots in mainframe computing, is expected to bring new levels of performance, security and utilization to x86 systems, designed to delivering measurable business value to our customers,” said Joe Menard, Corporate Vice President, Software Strategy, AMD.

“As part of our ongoing efforts to collaboratively support the adoption of virtualization technology across our broad ecosystem, we are working with Red Hat to tightly integrate virtualization as a core technology in its Linux offerings, with full support for the AMD64 architecture and its hardware-enabled technology. This is what our customers are asking for, and we expect they will be very happy with the combination of Red Hat Integrated Virtualization on AMD64-based platforms.”
