Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 Beta Now Available

Latest Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization release includes new advanced virtualization management features and industry-leading performance and scalability

Mumbai – August 18, 2011Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the release of the Beta of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0, the next-generation version of the company’s end-to-end virtualization solution. With the release of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 Beta, Red Hat previews new capabilities that build upon its industry-leading scalability and performance for both server virtualization and desktop virtualization use cases.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and its Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor technology have experienced strong momentum and support leading up to today’s 3.0 Beta release. Customers such as DreamWorks Animation and NTT Communications have announced that their cloud services and offerings are built using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. In addition, in collaboration with other industry leaders, Red Hat helped to establish the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) to promote KVM as an open alternative to proprietary virtualization solutions. The OVA has been well-received by the industry with significant growth in membership. Further, KVM has powered the majority of published SPECvirt 2010 benchmark results at www.spec.org, including the highest score and highest scale-up overall, clearly demonstrating its performance excellence.

Today’s Beta of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 previews several key enhancements, including:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager is now a Java application running on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform on Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • An updated KVM hypervisor based on the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
  • Industry-leading performance and scalability levels, supporting up to 128 logical CPUs and 2TB memory for hosts, and up to 64 vCPUs and 2TB memory for guests
  • A power user portal that allows end users to provision virtual machines, define templates and administer their own environments
  • A RESTful API that allows all aspects of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to be managed and configured programmatically
  • New multi-level administrative capabilities, improving product functionality for very large deployments
  • New local storage capabilities
  • An integrated and embedded reporting engine allowing for analysis of historic usage trends and utilization reports
  • SPICE WAN optimization and enhanced performance including dynamic compression and automatic tuning of desktop effects and color depth. The new version of SPICE also features enhanced support for Linux desktops.

Red Hat and BMC have a longstanding partnership that has extended into the cloud and virtualization arenas,” said Herb VanHook, vice president, CTO Office at BMC. “We are working closely with Red Hat to integrate BMC Cloud and Virtualization Management solutions and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization so that our customers can leverage the compelling benefits of our joint technologies. We look forward to leveraging the new capabilities in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 for our joint customers.”

We’ve worked closely with Red Hat to architect storage solutions that enable our mutual joint customers to optimize their shared IT infrastructures,” said Vaughn Stewart, director and virtualization evangelist at NetApp. “The combined strengths of NetApp and Red Hat deliver scalability, performance and cost-effectiveness to organizations with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and allow customers to take advantage of NetApp’s industry-leading storage efficiencies to free up resources and innovate for the future.”

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 is expected to provide customers with many exciting new features and capabilities, previewed in today’s Beta,” said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. “One of the most significant new features of the release is the ability to deploy the management server on Linux, making it an ideal platform for customers moving away from proprietary solutions.”
