Red Hat Virtualization
Red Hat is the world's leading open source solutions provider and most recognized Linux provider in the world. We serve government through technology and services made possible by the open source model. Now with integrated virtualization, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform provides dramatic capabilities that reduce server costs, make applications more reliable, less expensive to own, and easier to manage. It's the first complete open source solution that provides commercial-strength server and storage virtualization that is up to 300% faster than proprietary alternatives, compatible with the widest range of servers and software, and most importantly available at no extra charge – it is built right into the OS. Fully integrated. Ready to go. With no need to purchase additional products from multiple vendors.
Virtualization - Maximize Efficiency with the Right Power and Cooling technologies from APC by Schneider Electric
By now, everyone knows the billboard benefits of virtualization - increased computing throughput, smaller server footprint, fewer watts consumed. But most virtualized environments do not take advantage of the secret to maximizing the savings entitlement: streamlined, managed power and cooling that can significantly magnify the efficiency gains of virtualization. With virtualization, the power requirement of servers can be reduced by a factor of eight or even more. However, without a parallel refresh of the power and cooling infrastructure, dollars go down the drain from under-loaded power and cooling systems, suboptimal cooling distribution, and unmanaged dynamic IT loads. "Where should I locate my next server?" should be a routine input to an intelligent capacity management system. Scalable power and cooling that can track both virtualization and growth, combined with new tools for managing capacity and change, can yield savings that equal or exceed those of virtualization itself.
