New OVA White Paper - KVM: The Rise of Open Enterprise-Class Virtualization

KVM offers a complete, enterprise-class virtualization with lower costs, higher scalability, advanced security, and oVirt management support.

The Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) has published a new white paper on the attributes of Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) that make it a compelling and cost-effective alternative to proprietary virtualization technologies for enterprise-class deployments.

KVM has become a viable and compelling enterprise-class virtualization alternative, echoing the increasing rise of Linux in mission-critical enterprise environments and cloud computing. With increasing adoption and the full support of the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA), KVM now offers distinct advantages over other virtualization solutions, including lower costs, dramatically higher scalability, and advanced security. Combined with the oVirt open virtualization management initiative, KVM now offers a complete, enterprise-class virtualization solution that can be deployed for the most demanding virtualization workloads.

The OVA is ramping up its marketing activities to build awareness under the umbrella of "Project Megaphone" and this new white paper is one example of this effort. Access the paper here.
