Red Hat has announced the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, which includes virtualisation capabilities to help firms cut server costs.

Red Hat announced the availability of the Advanced Platform, for mission-critical server deployments, as well as an updated Enterprise Desktop for user productivity.

The company said the Advanced Platform would help users greatly reduce the cost and complexity of purchasing, integrating and managing separate virtualisation, storage management and high availability software.

Enhancements include performance, scalability and security features, extensive new hardware support, an expanded development environment and toolset, and improved interoperability with Windows and Unix.

The introduction of virtualisation technology in Red Hat’s offering follows a similar move by Novell, with its virtualised SuSE Linux platform.

To manage the virtualisation features, Red Hat has developed the Red Hat Network Satellite management software.
