Mandriva's new server Linux does virtualization treble

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva has released Corporate Server 4.0, a version of Linux aimed at businesses. The release is part of Mandriva's ongoing push beyond its roots as a provider of Linux for end-users to challenge Red Hat and Novell in the market for Linux for enterprise servers.

Corporate Server 4.0 is the first to offer three of the most prominent virtualization technologies--VMware, Xen and OpenVZ--in its standard version, said Mandriva, formerly known as MandrakeSoft.

The open-source operating system, released last week, is easier to customize than previous versions, Mandriva said. It uses a Web browser-based installation assistant, called "Fibric," to quickly set up specialized servers such as mail, file/print and directory servers.

It works on a wide range of servers and supports enterprise software such as Oracle databases, IBM's WebSphere and DB2, and Arkeia, Mandriva said.
