Novell Boosts Linux Virtualization with VMware Support
Novell modifies Linux kernel to support VMware Virtual Machine Interface to improve Linux virtual machine performance in VMware environments
"As the first enterprise Linux vendor to provide these enhancements for the VMware VMI, Novell continues to demonstrate our commitment to providing enterprise Linux customers benefits through virtualization and other innovative technologies," said Holger Dyroff, vice president of product management for SUSE Linux Enterprise at Novell. "Virtualization is proving its value in the data center, and our collaboration with VMware is part of our multi-pronged virtualization strategy to create additional opportunities for customers to reduce costs and increase efficiency with Linux virtualization."
Dan Chu, VMware vice president of emerging products and markets, said, "We are pleased that Novell is delivering enhanced performance for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server in VMware virtualized environments. The inclusion of VMware VMI patches into SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is designed to provide customers with increased performance, improved behavior of timing-critical workloads and better interoperability by allowing the same VMI-enabled SUSE Linux Enterprise Server kernel to run on physical machines and on VMware Infrastructure. We look forward to working with Novell on future initiatives to make SUSE Linux Enterprise run even better on VMware Infrastructure."
Novell is publicly previewing the enhancements this week at VMworld 2007 in San Francisco, and the VMI code is available today to customers who participate in Novell's beta program. For more information on SUSE Linux Enterprise offerings from Novell, visit www.novell.com/linux.
