Simplifying IT with Interoperable Microsoft-Novell Virtualization Solutions on Dell Servers

Many enterprises today are running multiple operating systems in their data centers, challenging IT administrators to manage disparate systems while simultaneously working to make the most of IT investments as energy costs continue to rise. Data center hardware is often underutilized, and administrators are overburdened with the task of maintaining various operating systems on tight budgets. Administrators need solutions that allow them to adapt to changing business needs and manage systems effectively.

As a result of a joint effort between Dell and the interoperability partnership of Microsoft and Novell, enterprises can implement comprehensive virtualization solutions based on DellTM  PowerEdgeTM  servers running Microsoft®  Windows Server®  2008 Hyper-VTM  virtualization and the Novell®  SUSE®  Linux®  Enterprise Server 10 OS. Dell PowerEdge servers utilize multi-core processors designed to create scalable and efficient hardware platforms for virtualization solutions. Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V and Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 work together seamlessly through application programming interfaces (APIs) that enable communication and assistance for key I/O paths between operating systems. Together, Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 on Dell PowerEdge servers offer a powerful virtualization solution designed to reduce the cost and complexity of managing heterogeneous environments while supporting flexible and robust interoperability, savings on hardware and energy costs, enhanced responsiveness and performance, and world-class combined support from Dell, Microsoft, and Novell."
