Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 2.2 Beta

Mar 30, 2010

Red Hat came out with its own virtualization product at the end of 2009 and is now driving development of its Enterprise Virtualization for Servers.

The version 2.2 beta is available exclusively for customers. The U.S. Linux provider is basing the hypervisor on KVM technology and appending its virtualization solution with a variety of tools. The 2.2 release should increase maximum memory per VM from 64 GBytes to 256 GBytes. Virtual servers and desktops can also be managed from the same management platform. Import and export of VM images and templates can also be over the industry-standard Open Virtualization Format (OVF).

The hypervisor itself is based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 kernel, which means new hardware support. Red Hat mentions the Nehalem-EX CPU from Intel and AMD's Opteron 6000 series as examples.
