The Red Hat-sponsored Fedora project has announced a significant release of its open source Linux distribution with added support for open cloud and open virtualization technologies as well as application development and serving and desktop improvements.

Fedora 17, which was announced today, incorporates the latest "Essex" release of the open source OpenStack cloud platform and the oVirt open virtualization management platform based on KVM.  Red Hat's recent endorsement of OpenStack drew much public attention as the open source cloud platform race begins in earnest.

The latest Fedora update also incorporates support for the GNOME 3.4 desktop and big boosts for application serving, including the incorporation of the JBoss Application Server 7, a pre-release of the anticipated Juno Eclipse SDK and the Cluster stack for high availability/load balancing.

  • High Availability / Load Balancing

    What high availability/load balancing product Fedora 17 brings ?
    Any reference documentation or how to about that ? Much better if there is any deep article about that since there is almost no good documentation about that.
