    Microsoft viens d’annoncer l’intégration prochaine de RedHat à la liste des systèmes Linux supportés par Hyper-V. L’année 2008 a été placé sous le signe de la virtualisation et il ne fait aucun doute que 2009 ainsi que les années à venir ne feront pas exception. Depuis deux ans, Microsoft s’est doté d’une véritable gamme de virtualisation avec l’arrivée d’Hyper-V en juin 2008, de System Center Virtual Machine Manager, d’App-V, et de MED-V.
    Aujourd’hui Microsoft renforce sa volonté de se faire une place sur le marché de la virtualisation déjà bien accaparé par VMWare. RedHat Entreprise Linux se rajoute donc à la liste des serveurs Windows et Novell Suse Linux déjà supportés par Hyper-V.
    C’est donc par accord commun entre Microsoft et Red Hat que des tests vont avoir lieu afin de valider leurs systèmes d’exploitation sur leurs hyperviseurs respectifs. Il deviendra donc possible de mettre en production sous contrat de support des systèmes Red Hat sur Hyper-V et des systèmes Windows sur le système hyperviseurs de Red Hat.
    Microsoft rejoindra la Red Hat Hardware Certification List au cours du second semestre 2009. Red Hat a aussi rejoint le programme Virtulization Validation Programme de Microsoft.
    Un composant d’intégration Linux pour RedHat arrivera dès que la phase de validation aura été passée.
    RedHat rejoindra donc la liste des systèmes déjà supportés par Hyper-V :

    • Windows Server 2008 x64 (VM configured with 1-, 2-, or 4 virtual processors SMP)
    • Windows Server 2008 x86 (VM configured with 1-, 2-, or 4 virtual processors SMP)
    • Windows Server 2003 SP2 x86 (VMs configured with 1- or 2 virtual processors SMP only)
    • Windows Server 2003 SP2 x64 (VMs configured with 1- or 2- virtual processors only)
    • Windows Server 2000 SP4 (VMs configured with 1- virtual processors only)
    • Windows HPC Server 2008
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 with Service Pack 2 x86 Edition
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 with Service Pack 2 x64 Edition
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 with Service Pack 1 x86 Edition

    FAQ
    Q1: Is this a joint agreement between Red Hat and Microsoft?
    A1: It’s not a joint agreement. Red Hat has signed an agreement to join Microsoft’s Server Virtualization Validation Program, while Microsoft has joined Red Hat’s Virtualization Certification Program . Microsoft will be listed in the Red Hat Hardware Certification List once it has completed the Red Hat certification process.
    Q2: It seems like customers should have had this type of support some time ago. What took so long to provide customers with technical support?
    A2: Microsoft and Red Hat started hearing requests for bilateral validation soon after Microsoft’s Server Virtualization Validation Program went live in June 2008. Both companies quickly agreed to work together; finalizing the details around comprehensive, coordinated technical support has taken some time. As a result, customers will be able to confidently deploy Microsoft Windows Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, virtualized on Microsoft and Red Hat hypervisors, knowing that the solutions will be supported by both companies.
    Q3: Are there other components of the deal that have not been disclosed yet?
    A3: No. The agreements are specific to establishing coordinated technical support for our mutual customers using server virtualization. The agreements have nothing to do with patents, and there are no patent rights or other open source licensing rights implications provided under these agreements. The agreements contain no financial clauses other than test fees for industry-standard certification and validation.
    While Microsoft and Red Hat continue to compete in the marketplace, customers have told us that technical support for server virtualization is an area where we must work together. Now we have agreements to test and coordinate technical support and provide customers with a new level of mutual support between Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows Server for their heterogeneous IT environments.
    Q4: What versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization will be validated, to what versions of Windows and Hyper-V?
    A4: Validations are now getting underway, and are planned to be comprehensive. Each company is doing its respective validations separately, with the first results expected later this year.
    As a participant in Microsoft’s Server Virtualization Validation Program, once Red Hat submits test logs indicating that Windows Server 2008 runs properly on the Red Hat Enterprise virtualization, the specific version of Red Hat used in the tests along with parameters of the virtual machine tested will be posted on Microsoft’s Server Virtualization Validation Program website. At that point customers can confidently deploy Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003 SP2, or Windows 2000 Server SP4 and later and receive coordinated technical support from both vendors.
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux SVVP completion is planned for calendar H2 2009.
    Microsoft currently plans to validate Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as a guest on Windows Server Hyper-V. Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V (all editions) and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 will now support uni-processor virtual machines running:
    · Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 (x86)
    · Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 (x64)
    · Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 (x86)
    · Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 (x64)

    Q5: How do customers get support for the validated solutions? Who do they call?
    A5: Customers with valid support agreements with both companies call either Microsoft or Red Hat to have their issues resolved. If the first vendor contacted cannot resolve the issue they will work with the other vendor to come to a resolution for the mutual customer.
    Q6: What level of support agreement is required from Red Hat and Microsoft for a customer to receive support when running RHEL on Windows or Windows on RHEL?
    A6: Customers with current Microsoft support agreements for Windows Server 2008 will be entitled to obtain support under this agreement. Where an existing agreement is not in place, customers can identify their willingness to purchase ‘per-call’ support.
    Any customer with a valid Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription, and using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 or 5.3 guests will be entitled to support under this agreement.
    Q7: How do these agreements compare to agreements you both have with VMware and/or Citrix?
    A7: There is no change in Microsoft's or Red Hat's relationship with VMware. Note that both Windows Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux can be deployed on VMware ESX. Red Hat doesn’t have any virtualization agreements with Citrix at this time. Both VMware and Citrix have product configurations that have been validated through the Microsoft Server Virtualization Validation Program.
    Q8: How do I find out what validations have been completed?
    A8: Validations will be posted to the respective Microsoft and Red Hat web sites:
    http://www.redhat.com/rhel/compatibility/hardware/
    http://www.windowsservercatalog.com/svvp.aspx

    Q9: Who will be the primary beneficiary of this agreement?
    A9: The primary beneficiary of this agreement will be Microsoft and Red Hat customers. Of course, a secondary beneficiary will be the virtualization ecosystem because it will be more useful to customers, leading to wider deployments and faster technology development.
