1602_redhat_jpg-121x0Since 2010, we’ve worked with Red Hat to support our mutual customers with enhanced interoperability in Windows environments. This continues with today’s beta release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.9.

The RHEL 5.9 beta was engineered with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V interoperability in mind. The device drivers needed to run RHEL as a first-class guest on Hyper-V are built right in, making it easier for customers to manage their heterogeneous Red Hat Enterprise Linux-Windows environments for virtualization and private cloud. The Hyper-V drivers included in this release will soon be certified through the Red Hat Hardware Certification Program– further validation that customers can expect a reliable, enterprise-class virtualization experience.
