Running Your Applications on the Red Hat Virtualized Platform: What Partners Need to Know
Source: Red Hat
Virtualization provides an abstraction layer between the operating system and the underlying hardware. This decoupling of the operating system breaks the traditional one-to-one relationship of applications to servers, giving organizations enormous flexibility in deploying hardware. By doing this, virtualization has begun to transform the way enterprises manage their IT resources. This enables them to build infrastructures that are flexible, scalable, and - most importantly - economical, while laying the foundation for creating truly agile organizations.
