Virtualization technologies have gained a strong footing in enterprise data centers in recent years. According to Frost & Sullivan research, 65 percent of all U.S. businesses have incorporated virtualization into their data centers. For many of those, the commitment to virtualization is serious -- 20 percent have virtualized more than three-quarters of their serversa number that is expected to double in the next two years.

This paper examines historical concerns about Linux virtualization, and assesses why, when, and how enterprises can safely virtualize their critical Linux workloads. We also review a Linux virtualization solution that meets enterprise needs -- the powerful combination of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and HP ProLiant Servers.
