Red Hat, Novell race to offer better Windows guest support, Windows Server 2008 virtualization support
Even as rival Novell celebrates an expanded technical collaboration with Microsoft, Red Hat has released a 5.1 update designed to make its Linux a better platform for virtualizing Linux and Windows workloads.
In spite of its close partnership with Microsoft, Red Hat and Novell, XenSource's CTO maintains the virtualization hypervisor belongs in server hardware -- not in the operating system.Speaking at Interop in New York, XenSource CTO Simon Crosby said the slim, trim Xen hypervisor in products such as the company's newly launched XenCenter OEM Edition is a more natural fit in hardware than in infrastructure software.

I'll be it wasn't peanuts, and Xandros probably really needed the money.

Novell has become the latest vendor to sign-up to the Green Grid - a gang of supposedly environmentally minded tech companies that are committed to exchanging ideas around how to make data centers more energy efficient. Novell's contribution seems to be based around the idea that virtualisation, specifically Xen running on the company's Suse Enterprise Linux server, can help drive up server utilisation rates.
Earlier this month we were all trying to figure out the reasoning behind the Microsoft/Novell deal. After all, the two companies have hardly been best buddies in the past.Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer, in a Q&A session after his keynote speech at the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) conference in Seattle, offers some insight.
