"Salsa Labs was already a long-time user of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux and had seen great value in the enterprise operating
platform. It was a natural evolution for the organization to look
to Red Hat for its virtualization solution as well.
"Nobody else was really in the running when it came to choosing
a virtualization platform," said Nemmers. "I had a basic feature
set in mind, including live migration, robust management, rapid
provisioning of additional systems, dynamic additions of hosting
capacity and an offline management infrastructure. Red Hat
Enterprise Virtualization was able to provide all of this. And
because both products—Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat
Enterprise Virtualization—come from the same vendor, they
behave similarly. For us, the combination of a simplified stack and
a much lower price than competing products made Red Hat's
virtualization solution the clear winner."
