Hitachi’s new tech allows running multiple instances of server virtualisation software on a PC server

Hitachi added new functions to its Virtage logical partitioning feature

By CBR Staff Writer

Hitachi, in collaboration with Red Hat has developed a new technology which is expected to enable operation of multiple instances of server virtualisation software on a PC server.

The company has begun offering enhanced virtualisation application incorporating Red Hat’s technology for virtualisation and cloud computing.

Hitachi has also added new functions to its earlier Virtage logical partitioning feature offered on Hitachi’s BladeSymphony server line.

The ability to operate multiple instances of server virtualisation software is feasible for multi-tenant style cloud computing environments as it will be able to isolate the load level fluctuation effects and faults between tenants.

The collaboration has completed formal verification of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, together with its incorporated Kernel-based Virtual Machine virtualisation technology, running over Hitachi’s Virtage, operating on the BladeSymphony server line.

Further, Virtage users will be allowed to use both Hitachi LPAR’s near hardware level stability and isolation, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux with KVM’s virtualisation features and improved Linux compatibility.

According to Hitachi, Red Hat Enterprise Linux with KVM on LPAR will deal with the problem of security and isolation in multi-tenant VM services environments, and will reduce additional server platform requirement, while reducing power consumption.
