Microsoft and Red Hat have completed certification of their respective virtualized environments under the cooperative technical support agreement the two companies signed in February. That means both companies have tested, validated, and now will support virtualized environments consisting of Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.  Similarly, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 are validated to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4, using Red Hat’s KVM-based hypervisor.

 

Microsoft and Red Hat have also selected certain applications that will receive technical support when running on certified server virtualization software. For more on this deal, check out the Virtualization Team Blog.

 

More to come,
