Integrated Hypervisor Virtualization Technologies in HP BladeSystem ProLiant Server Blades and ProLiant Servers
Source: Hewlett-Packard (HP)
The enterprise has quickly adopted virtualization, which has stimulated development of new methods for deploying the hypervisor (the virtualization layer). HP ProLiant iVirtualization integrates third-party hypervisors onto ProLiant platforms, allowing customers to quickly set up and manage virtual machines. ProLiant iVirtualization incorporates familiar ProLiant server management tools so that system administrators can manage any of the available hypervisor versions using HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM). The first implementations of ProLiant iVirtualization are available with VMware ESXi and Citrix XenServer. HP is also working with Microsoft to integrate Hyper-V Server in the same manner once it is released.
