Virtualization Enhancements: Itanium and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1

The reliability, availability, serviceability (RAS) and security features of the Intel® Itanium processor allow users to confidently deploy industry-standard software virtualization, enhancing customers' ability to consolidate multiple applications on Itanium-based systems.

"Itanium Solutions Alliance founding sponsors worked with Red Hat to test, validate and optimize this fully integrated virtualization solution. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1 provides customers with the maximum choice among enterprise systems when deploying open source applications on Itanium," said Scott Crenshaw, Vice President of Product Marketing at Red Hat. "Also, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform 5.1 provides additional high availability and storage virtualization technologies, and scales to support any number of processors and guest environments - making it the perfect solution for today's large, high-performance Itanium systems."

"The Itanium Solutions Alliance is pleased to have the opportunity to coordinate efforts with Red Hat to expand software solutions for Itanium-based systems and contribute to the growth of the Independent Software Vendor ecosystem," said Yoichi Murakami, Fujitsu Limited, Chairman of the Itanium Solutions Alliance Enabling Committee.
