KVM, a new virtualization technology that lets Linux computers run multiple operating systems simultaneously, has won a significant endorsement from Red Hat. Red Hat, the dominant Linux seller, will include KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) in the next version of its hobbyist Linux version, Fedora.

The endorsement comes on the heels of another significant KVM achievement that bodes well for its adoption: Linux leader Linus Torvalds accepted KVM into the main Linux source code tree in February, a move that makes maintenance and debugging easier and gives projects a higher profile.

Among Red Hatters working on KVM is Ingo Molnar, one of the company's top brainiacs. Molnar has been building paravirtualization abilities into KVM, which removes bottlenecks by letting virtual machines communicate more directly with computer hardware such as network cards and storage systems.

Mr. Popo
3GSM World Congress, which is taking place in Barcelona this week, is the highlight event of the world cellular industry.
SanDisk - The world's largest supplier of flash memories has presented a few innovations, such as the microSD card featuring a 4GB volume and an embedded 8GB flash drive developed in Israel.

The first product which SanDisk presented is the 4GB microSD-HC card - The market's largest capacity for the world's smallest memory card.
The 4GB card, which is designated for phone owners that are using their phone as a camera and a media player, can hold more than 1,000 songs, 2,000 pictures or up to 8 hours of video.
The card will be available during 2007, and is now under tests by the leading manufacturers, in integrating it with their phones.

The new microSD card will be marketed with a case including adapters for both miniSD and SD, so that the user will be able to choose the proper model for him and transfer data from various devices to his cellular.


Another product is the iNAND - an embedded 8GB flash drive.
The new drive, developed in SanDisk's development center in Kfar Saba, is JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council - The group that establishes the industry standards for memory operation, features, and packaging.) which makes it easier to be integrated with leading manufacturers' products (Such as phones and various handhelds).
The iNAND is using an SD interface, and is a large storage and performance solution, supporting cellular phones, MP3 players, game consoles, GPS devices and video players.


The current price for any of the product is unknown.
