RALEIGH, N.C. – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT) said Tuesday that momentum for the adoption of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization by North American channel partners is growing thanks in part to the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Accelerator Program.

Launched in June 2010, the Program has driven the adoption of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization portfolio through training and support of virtualization-certified Red Hat channel partners.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is an end-to-end virtualization solution designed to enable pervasive datacenter virtualization and significantly enhance capital and operation efficiency.

Red Hat introduced Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers in November 2009 and debuted Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops as part of the product portfolio’s 2.2 update, released in June 2010.

Including both a hypervisor based on Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology and management tools, the portfolio has been adopted globally by enterprises crossing a broad spectrum of industries.
