Principal Product Manager, Red Hat

I don’t often find myself getting overly excited about maintenance releases, however Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.4.1 is an exception due to two key factors:

  • Preview support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as a hypervisor host
  • Support for up to 4,000 GB memory in a single virtual machine

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.4, originally introduced official guest operating system support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. In continuing down the path of providing the latest Red Hat technologies to our customers, I am proud to announce that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.4.1 has preview support for RHEL 7 as a hypervisor.  Red Hat customers with active subscriptions will be able to take advantage of using RHEL 7 as a hypervisor either as a RHEL host, or by using our thin Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor image.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization continues to be the industry leader when it comes to scale and performance of virtual machine workloads (according to SPECvirt_sc2010).  Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.4.1 enhances performance by enabling support for up to 4,000 GB of memory in a single virtual machine.  This is nearly four times the virtual memory capacity of other leading virtualization solutions in the market, and allows our customers to more confidently virtualize their most mission critical workloads at near-bare-level performance.  Combined with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization’s support for up to 160 vCPUs in a single guest, I believe you could say that “Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization eats Monster VMs for breakfast”.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is tightly integrated with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Both platforms are built by the same people on open standards and share industry-leading characteristics such as performance, scalability, and security. In fact, Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Smart Virtualization, a combined Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enables customers to fully virtualize their Red Hat Enterprise Linux workloads at a cost effective level.

More customers are looking at Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization as organizations seek lower-cost enterprise virtualization platforms. When aligned with Red Hat CloudForms and its OpenStack integration, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization provides a platform that can meet the needs of today’s enterprise virtualization customers while assisting the transition into a private cloud infrastructure. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.4.1 is an important component in helping our customers to build their infrastructure platform without boundaries.
