Your bottom line depends on having a highly available and resilient infrastructure. Not only today - it must be ready to scale to meet future challenges introduced by evolving technology and business demands. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization - powered by the people behind Red Hat Enterprise Linux takes you beyond bare metal to an open, agile foundation that's ready to take on the future.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux - trusted by thousands of organizations on millions of systems worldwide for mission-critical workloads. This proven enterprise-ready platform lets you extend the infrastructure you have to build for the future, all while maintaining the business continuity your organization demands.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is built on two major open source projects: Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) and oVirt. Red Hat is also an active member of the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA).
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization performs as well as or better than bare metal. It builds on the highly tuned Red Hat Enterprise Linux base, delivering industry-leading performance for Linux and Microsoft Windows workloads.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is purchased, like all Red Hat software, on the subscription model. This means no high upfront license fees. Just a simple yearly subscription that includes software access, updates, support, and access to the customer portal.
Easily extensible - integrated framework
Deploying an open and extensible virtualization framework can be a critical component to successful integration with an existing infrastructure, as well as add-on software and tools.
Go beyond bare metal
Your virtualization solution should deliver the same performance, scalability, and reliability as your Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform. When you deploy Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you get the added benefits of greater utilization and agility, and the ability to use your existing investments.
