Open Virtualization Alliance Expands with 65 New Members

The Open Virtualization Alliance, a consortium committed to fostering the adoption of open virtualization technologies, including Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), has announced the addition of 65 new members to the consortium. With this, the consortium has achieved nearly ten-fold growth in membership since its establishment, and now includes members across a wide spectrum of hardware, software, services and cloud computing businesses.

In May, technology leaders IBM, Red Hat, SUSE, BMC Software, Eucalyptus Systems, HP, and Intel announced the formation of the Open Virtualization Alliance. The alliance seeks to provide education, best practices and technical advice to help businesses understand and evaluate their virtualization options, including open source alternatives such as KVM.
