I am going to assume you mean virtual machines and not VAX VMS. For virtual machines on Enterprise Linux you will want to look at KVM as that is their main virtualization platform. However their website really details some information that you might want to look into http://www.redhat.com/en/technologies/virtualization

VirtualBox works very well on all of the systems I use.

While it does work great I personally wouldn't run VirtualBox as my Enterprise Solution. I am assuming though this will be for his enterprise based off the title of this thread. Otherwise if this is for home I would absolutely use VirtualBox instead of KVM just for ease.

Almost any virtual machine made for your arch will work. Free systems aren't too bad. The commercial offerings have many more corporate features.

The one to choose may also depend on your hardware. Without knowing that we really can't guess. Some hardware is better suited slightly for some vm's.

For the NOT free RHEL 7.0
you will want to use redhat's KVM


contact your redhat support rep

you DID buy the REQUIRED server license ?
-- right?

the $799 - $1200 per year support contract is required
https://www.redhat.com/wapps/store/catalog.html
or

install the FREE rebuild of the code base
CentOS 7.0


but to literally answer you question

Thanks to you 4 for your answers.

My Problem is that my motherbard has a pci card that I have to use. The constructor of this PCi card has developped drivers for different OS but those for Windows 7 are not good. The applications that I have to launch with this PCI card are only available on Windows. Windows Xp is too old for my company's security service.

I wanted to virtualized a linux distrib on my Windows 7 but all the virtualization tools do not see my PCi card. The best solution I had was to use ESXI but with this solution I had to use 2 machines. In the contract, it is written, one machine.

The other solution I thought about was to use a linux distrib on my computer that will see my PCI CARD, to launch a VM on it with Windows seven and to connect my application on the IP Address of the Linux distrib.

I thought about EL6 because it is the newest linux distrib which has drivers for my PCI CARD.


If you have a better idea, please tell me.

Thanks a lot.

Philippe.
