VMTurbo boosts its platform-agnostic capabilities with optimization support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.1, expanding its virtual data center management capabilities for another key segment of the market.

VMTurboVirtualization start-up VMTurbo Inc. continues its path into the virtualized world with official support of Red Hat Inc.'s Enterprise Virtualization 3.1. VMTurbo's integration with the fedora-clad OS comes with "performance and resource optimization" perks, which expand VMTurbo's capabilities and strengthen the flexibility of its workload and infrastructure management solution.

VMTurbo's claim to fame is a scheduling engine to automate service level agreements (SLAs) through workload management and resource balancing. Since its inception, VMTurbo endeavors to provide a platform-agnostic approach to virtualization management, supporting more hypervisors and the most popular virtualization solutions. Red Hat is a natural extension of that process.

In a prepared statement, Chuck Dubuque, senior manager of product marketing at Red Hat, said, "VMTurbo and Red Hat and have been working closely together [due in part to] VMTurbo's support of multi-hypervisor environments, including open source platforms used to develop private, public and hybrid clouds." Dubuque and Red Hat are pleased another player in the virtualization space can contribute to the proliferation of Red Hat technology.

For VMTurbo, Red Hat represents a renewed ability for supporting more cost-effective sale-out clouds, a critical component for many solution providers looking for a solid on-ramp to expanding their offerings. 

Likewise, this gives competitive differentiation for VMTurbo, especially when combined with its ability to provide a single management console for all support cloud and virtual environments. Those efforts are linked to VMTurbo's announcement last week that brought certification for VCE Vblock Systems, expanding VMTurbo's ability to provide a management backbone for the evolving converged infrastructure space.

But VMTurbo is not alone in its agenda: Red Hat has also deepened its virtualization goals with the acquisition of ManageIQ, putting Red Hat on the map to expand its in-house management capabilities, a market set to hit $3 billion in 2016. Amid solid Q3 2013 earnings, with revenues seeing an 18 percent jump to $344 million, Red Hat is on track to maintain its momentum for its open-source agenda.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 under VMTurbo Operations Manager is out now, and partners can get their hands on it here.
