Red Hat's $107 million virtualization gambit

Author: JT Smith

Red Hat is taking aim at every other virtualization vendor - be it Citrix, VMware or Microsoft - with this buy. The argument is simple: The OS is critical and the OS is what Red Hat is all about.

"You may not know this but most virtualization solutions today use components developed by Red Hat for their critical functions," Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens said on a conference call. "These competitors are highly dependent on Red Hat for feature development and hardware enablement - no one is better equipped to carry open source leadership forward."
