Red Hat acquires Kumranet

A terrific news.

After the acquisition of Xen by Citrix, another virtualization start-up become a part of a global player.

Kumranet develops KVM, which is still in its infantry but promises a lot more than Xen due to its tight kernel integration (see here for a more detailed explanation) and has also a desktop virtualization solution, that is clearly headed toward Citrix Metaframe.

So, they have the operating system, the in-kernel hypervisor, they just need a datacenter  virtualization-aware resource manager.
