Red Hat & Microsoft Temporarily Cage Their Fire-Breathing Dragons

Red Hat and Microsoft, about as virulent a pair of enemies as has ever existed, threw a leash over their fire-breathing dragons long enough on Monday to announce a cooperative pact forced on them by their mutual users - folks who may be holding back from committing to virtualization ahead of a truce. The companies say they're going to support each other's operating systems as guests on each other's current virtualization schemes. Windows Server will be supported on Red Hat's transient Xen virtualization and Red Hat 5 will be supported on Microsoft's Hyper V widgetry. What happens when Red Hat moves on to its own Qumranet-derived KVM hypervisor when it gets to RHEL 6.0 is unclear. The way the détente works each company will join the other's virtualization validation/certification program and test and validate each other's operating systems on each other's hypervisors ...

What was good enough yesterday, no longer meets the today's needs and surely won't meet tomorrow's. Today's financial climate adds massive complications to this journey and totally changes the stakes for CIOs and the IT organizations they run. To succeed in competitive markets, operational excellence needs to constantly improve over the next several years. Attaining operational excellence will require IT to change how it approaches system operatio... (more)
