Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
by Red Hat
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation is a complete open-source virtualisation solution, derived from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel, Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology and oVirt virtualisation management projects.
- Enhanced Performance: Red Hat has consistently held a leadership position in industry benchmarking performance studies by SPEC, including the latest SpecVIRT2013 results.
- Infrastructure Availability: The integration with Red Hat Satellite allows customers to gain insights into errata information for their RHEL infrastructure and workloades to ensure downtime outages are properly planned for all available updates
- Infrastructure Monitoring: Integration with third-party monitoring tools provides the display of critical information and allows administrators to take appropriate actions to mitigate the risk of an impending outage.
Hot Add Memory: For traditional applications such as ERPs, databases and Middleware architectures, RHEV allows the ability to add resources such as hot-add CPU, disk and network and hot-add memory to enable the scale-up and increase in performance.
- Seamless migration of workloads from VMware vSphere to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation: An integrated UI for the virt-v2v component enables administrators to point to an existing VMware vCenter server and select specific virtual machines that they would like to bring into Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation. RHEV then automates the process of converting the VM disk image and properly importing it into the selected RHEV cluster configuration.
