Tighter portfolio integration and automation enhancements to KVM-based virtualization platform provides an open, powerful foundation to enterprises seeking IT modernization without lock-in
Red Hat Virtualization enables customers to virtualize traditional applications, which can reduce IT expenses through infrastructure consolidation and helps to integrate existing workloads with new technologies, like private cloud and container-based workloads. This means that enterprises can optimize current infrastructure while better addressing future IT needs, all without the cost, complexity, and lock-in of proprietary virtualization solutions.
A key enhancement to Red Hat Virtualization 4.1 is deeper integration with Red Hat’s broad portfolio of open hybrid cloud technologies. This includes extended support for Red Hat CloudForms and Ansible by Red Hat, allowing for a single management interface across heterogeneous datacenter infrastructure and the automation of role-based administration and operational tasks. Tighter integration with Red Hat OpenStack Platform helps further bridge the gap between traditional and cloud-enabled workloads, and continued alignment with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 delivers improved support for Windows-based workloads and hot CPU unplug support.
Additional new capabilities and enhancements in the latest version of the platform include:
Red Hat Virtualization 4.1 is available now via the Red Hat Customer Portal.
Gunnar Hellekson, director, product management, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization, Red Hat, “The vast majority of enterprise IT innovation is built on a virtualized foundation, making open virtualization technologies like Red Hat Virtualization vital as businesses look to save money while remaining nimble enough to address evolving end user and customer demands. Red Hat Virtualization 4.1 does this by linking a broad portfolio of technologies, from Linux containers to OpenStack-based hybrid clouds, into a unified stack, creating a crucial tool for digital transformation.”
