In December 2008, we announced our VERDE platform together with IBM and Canonical for serving cloud-based virtual Ubuntu Linux desktops. Understanding that some of our customers may have an investment in Red Hat desktops, we recently extended the VERDE platform to support them as well.
You can now serve Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and CentOS 5.x virtual desktops from VERDE, side by side with Ubuntu 8.04 and even Windows XP virtual desktops. Additionally, we’ve even introduced 64-bit guest support for Red Hat EL 5 desktops, as well as SMP capabilities for up to 8 virtual CPUs.
This makes VERDE suitable even for many Red Hat-based scientific workloads, such as statistical analysis applications, which may require expanded guest capabilities. And of course, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has always been and continues to be a supported server platform for VERDE as well.
Whether you are looking to serve Red Hat, Ubuntu, or Microsoft workloads, VERDE is the answer you are looking for.
