DB2 gets some Virtual Iron

Quoting from InfoWorld:

Startup Virtual Iron Software on Friday announced that its VFe virtual computing platform has been certified to work with applications compatible with IBM’s Linux-based version of DB2 Universal Database on both Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise 9 or Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux 3.0.

Virtual Iron officials believe the certification is important to many of it s users because they because increasingly have been looking for transparent virtualization capabilities that work across the breadth of their datacenters and so need applications like DB2 for Linux to work and play well in a virtualized environment.

“Early customers are beginning to move their business applications to the Virtutal Iron solution so we are pretty pleased that customers running DB2 can use our product knowing this designation ensures full interoperability between DB2 and VFe,” said John Thibault, Virtual Iron’s President and CEO.

Virtual Iron will be demonstrating its software at the DB2 User Group conference which runs May 23-26 in Denver.
