Red Hat acquires Qumranet

Red Hat announced that it has acquired Qumranet, Inc., developers of the KVM virtualization tool. "Qumranet is the inventor and key maintainer of KVM, the only virtualization technology that is fully incorporated into the Linux kernel. Red Hat views KVM as the next generation of virtualization technology -- it combines support for the latest hardware virtualization capabilities and the rapid feature development of the Linux kernel into a complete, highly functional, virtualization platform. Red Hat believes that a strong coupling between the hypervisor and the kernel is a major advantage." (thanks to Matt Domsch).
