A recent finding by IDG in 2011 found that over 70 percent of customers surveyed are either already deploying a dual virtualization vendor strategy, or have concrete plans to do so. With the maturation of the virtualization market and the emergence of alternative virtualization platforms, VMware customers are recognizing the advantages of deploying Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization either as a second virtualization platform to coexist with VMware vSphere or as complete replacement. Many customers begin this deployment by moving some or all of their Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual servers into the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment and then evaluate their virtual servers running Windows.
In all cases, customers are realizing the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization benefits of greater choice through open source, better performance and security, improved workload density, and lower cost of ownership. This paper summarizes benefits and provides an overview of the steps required to move your Linux and Windows VMs from VMware to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
