Open source solutions provider Red Hat has released its Beta of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.0, the next-generation version of the company's end-to-end virtualisation solution.

The new version of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.0 Beta features new capabilities that enhance its scalability and performance for both server virtualisation and desktop virtualisation.

"Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.0 is expected to provide customers with many exciting new features and capabilities, previewed in today's Beta," said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualisation Business at Red Hat.  "One of the most significant new features of the release is the ability to deploy the management server on Linux, making it an ideal platform for customers moving away from proprietary solutions."

The Beta of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.0 now includes the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation Manager as a Java application running on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

It also has an updated KVM hypervisor based on the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Beta also features stringer performance and scalability levels, supporting up to 128 logical CPUs and 2TB memory for hosts, and up to 64 vCPUs and 2TB memory for guests, 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 Virtualisation to be managed and configured programmatically.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.0 integrates new multi-level administrative capabilities, improving product functionality for very large deployments, new local storage capabilities and an integrated and embedded reporting engine allowing for analysis of historic usage trends and utilisation reports

SPICE WAN optimisation and enhanced performance including dynamic compression and automatic tuning of desktop effects and color depth is also included.  The new version of SPICE also features enhanced support for Linux desktops.
