Swedish Internet Leader, Voddler, offers its customers a wide variety of movies on-demand and the company has announced it will use Red Hat Enterprise virtualization technologies to virtualize its Web servers responsible for the movie service and the database servers containing all of its film titles. Also mentioned in this MarketWire news release, the company will also use Red Hat Network Satellite to quickly and easily configure and maintain the virtualized servers running on the new Red Hat platform.

Voddler has announced that it has standardized its movie service on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

"'The powerful combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization made Red Hat the obvious solution to virtualize our key business-critical systems,' said Roger Kemmler, IT manager at Voddler. 'Red Hat's subscription-based model will help us support our infrastructure as we grow and launch the service in new markets. For this we require a stable and secure platform that is cost-effective, centrally administered and extremely scalable. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization meets all of those criteria.'

"Voddler continually updates its catalogue of film titles and its growing customer base is using the service more frequently, which means the demand on web server and database capacity is continually increasing. A key requirement for Voddler is to have the flexibility to scale the server platform and redistribute resources to meet the demand for increased capacity. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization allows Voddler to consolidate and increase the effectiveness of its physical infrastructure by using features such as live migration and dynamic resource scheduling to help ensure that the physical systems are used close to their maximum capacity."
