Red Hat Shows Late to Virtual Party

Who are the leaders in core virtualization tools? VMware, Microsoft and Citrix. That's a pretty good list. Red Hat hopes that you'll soon include one more, and think of the fourth as every bit as important as the big three. And the $100 million-plus acquisition of Qumranet should lay the groundwork.

Qumranet, named after the caves that held the Dead Sea Scrolls, has the KVM hypervisor and virtual desktop tools. From all accounts, KVM is pretty cool, but is it cool enough to break through the VMware/Microsoft/Citrix marketing machines and third-party ecosystems? You tell me.

Do we need another hypervisor? What's your favorite virtualization vendor? Real answers can be sent to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
