Qualcomm selects Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Platform
Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), provider of open source solutions, announced that Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM) has adopted Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization as a key virtualization platform for its production workloads.
“After completing our formal evaluation of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization portfolio, we’ve begun to put the solution into our production environments,” said Bob Gerling, staff IT engineer at Qualcomm.
“Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization was a logical next step in our evolving Red Hat technology collaboration that builds on our extensive use of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and its integrated virtualization technology,” he further commented.
Qualcomm deploys Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 as its base operating system and leverages the solution’s integrated KVM hypervisor to also deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 as its guest operating system. It manages these virtual instances with the management tools included in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Red Hat as its platform offers organizations like ours an enterprise-grade, open source alternative to traditional virtualization offerings,” added Gerling.
