Japanese Telco to Use Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization

Japanese telco and service provider, NTT Communications, says the company will use Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to build its new cloud and Web hosting facilities. As reported this this story on The Register, NNT Com was one of the key partners Red Hat tapped to get input for developing RHEV and was one of the beta testers for the product.


NTT Communications plans to build its cloud and Web hosting facilities using RHEV.

"RHEV has been getting some traction among service providers. In early March, Swedish movie-on-demand service Voddler said it was using RHEV to virtualize the brand-spanking-new Cisco Systems UCS blade servers behind its movie service. And a week later, IBM said that its test and development cloud for programmers, given the catchy name Smart Business Development and Test on the IBM Cloud, which will be available sometime this quarter, will be based on KVM running on x64 iron. The CloudBurst on-premise versions of the IBM Cloud are preconfigured with VMware's ESX Server 3.5. So in this case, that V2V converter is going to come in handy if RHEV lets you run it backwards, moving RHEV stacks in development to ESX stacks in production. It would be far easier for IBM to just carve up chunks of its eponymous cloud and let customers choose what hypervisor they want for test, dev, and production. But you get fewer press releases that way."
