Red Hat releases new virtualisation platform

Combines Virtualisation Hypervisor and Virtualisation Manager for Servers.

By CBR Staff Writer

Open source software provider Red Hat has released a new server virtualisation platform, designed to meet enterprise requirements for deploying and managing heterogeneous virtualisation and cloud environments. The Enterprise Virtualization for Servers includes the company’s Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor and Virtualization Manager for Servers.

According to Red hat, the Virtualization Hypervisor is designed to host Linux and Microsoft Windows virtual servers and desktops. It provides a virtualisation foundation for cloud deployments and other highly dynamic IT environments. Using KVM technology, the hypervisor provides performance and security coupled with memory sharing technology, which permits guest consolidation, and enterprise features such as live migration.

The Virtualization Manager for Servers is a platform for configuring, provisioning, managing and organising virtualised Linux and Microsoft Windows servers. It is designed for customers who seek to reduce cost and time required to manage virtualisation deployments. With a set of management capabilities and search and grouping features, Virtualization Manager equips customers with the ability to efficiently control a virtualised infrastructure, the company said.

Paul Cormier, executive vice president and president of products and technologies at Red Hat, said: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation provides ISVs, IHVs and customers with the opportunity to seamlessly move applications and hardware platforms from bare metal computing to virtualised computing to cloud computing while maintaining certifications.

“We believe that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation, especially the management components, will allow customers to use virtualisation pervasively across their entire computing infrastructure.
