Red Hat, joined by Cisco, IBM, Intel, NetApp and SuSE, is taking on VMware through a vendor-neutral virtualization community project based on its RHEV-M stack. As reported on The Register, Red Hat is releasing the RHEV-M code to oVirt under an Apache Software Foundation (ASF) license.


"Red Hat has been joined by Cisco, IBM, Intel, NetApp and SuSE to lead oVirt Project, planning on building a pluggable hypervisor management framework along with an ecosystem of plug-in partners around its virtualization management tool for KVM.

"To seed the project and motivate the community, Red Hat is releasing the RHEV-M code to oVirt under an Apache Software Foundation (ASF) licence.

"oVirt's official launch is in early November, at a workshop day that will be hosted by networking giant Cisco at its San Jose, California, campus. The ASF'd RHEV-M code will be released to Git repositories at this event."
