Enables to preview new capabilities for both server virtualisation and desktop virtualisation use cases
Red Hat has debuted the beta version of its end-to-end virtualisation offering, Enterprise Virtualization 3.0.
Red Hat said the new offering will enable it preview new capabilities for both server virtualisation and desktop virtualisation use cases, and provide customers with new features and capabilities, previewed in today’s Beta.
Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 previews several key enhancements, where Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager is now a Java application running on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
The latest release can deploy the management server on Linux, making it suited for customers moving away from proprietary offerings.
It has an updated KVM hypervisor based on the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and can support 128 logical CPUs and 2TB memory for hosts, and up to 64 vCPUs and 2TB memory for guests.
The new virtualisation offering features a power user portal that allows end users to provision virtual machines, define templates and administer their own environments, and a RESTful API that allows all aspects of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to be managed and configured programmatically.
The 3.0 version has an integrated and embedded reporting engine allowing for analysis of historic usage trends and utilisation reports, and SPICE WAN optimisation and enhanced performance including dynamic compression and automatic tuning of desktop effects and color depth.
