This article reports that Virtual Iron Software's VFe virtual computing platform has obtained the Ready for IBM DB2 Software for Linux designation, as of July 2005. Organizations running applications that use the DB2 Universal Database for Linux on either Novell Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0, on top of Virtual Iron's virtualization platform, can run DB2 UDB V8.2 on any Intel 32-bit platform. Says Bernie Spang, director of IBM Information Management, Our customers are choosing to adopt Linux in their data centers because it provides the scalability and performance they need. By meeting the requirements of The Ready for DB2 program, Virtual Iron's VFe has proven that it can provide businesses with greater flexibility, management and availability for their DB2 environments. Virtual Iron VFe is a comprehensive software-based virtual computing platform--the first to combine multiple independent servers to create dynamically scalable, multiplatform virtual servers. It is the only solution that completely separates the physical computing hardware from the operating systems and applications--allowing transparent virtualization of a collection of interconnected physical servers.
