Red Hat Virtualization

Features and benefits

Open virtualization that saves you money

The open nature of Red Hat® Virtualization delivers a lower total cost of ownership—when compared to other solutions. One customer’s return-on-investment was more than 100% with a payback period of less than 6 months.

Industry-leading performance

We ran the workloads you typically virtualize on Red Hat Virtualization and measured their performance across a bunch of VMs running on a single server. The results speak for themselves—Red Hat Virtualization is as good as bare metal.

Cross-portfolio, cross-platform integration

Red Hat Virtualization works best when deployed with other Red Hat products, but that hasn’t stopped us from collaborating with other vendors so you can use a single virtualization platform to create, start, stop, pause, migrate, and template hundreds of VMs on hundreds of other hardware or software.
