Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Scores Major Cloud Win

Red Hat (RHT) is taking off in the world of open source virtualization solutions for the cloud—or it has scored a major enterprise customer, at least. This week, it announced that British Airways (BA) is deploying the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform to power its private cloud, an important win for a Red Hat product that until now has seen few enterprise adoptions on this scale.

The Red Hat product will power both the BA website, which sees traffic of 450,000 visitors on an average day, and internal BA cloud applications. The deployment involves 750 virtual machines on 130 hosts spread across two data centers.
