Red Hat launches Enterprise Virtualisation 3.2
Offering includes Storage Live Migration and third-party plug-in framework
Open source solutions provider Red Hat Inc today announced the global availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.2, with fully supported Storage Live Migration and a new third-party plug-in framework.
The company hailed the virtualisation suite as "the industry's only mission-critical end-to-end, open source virtualisation infrastructure designed for enterprise users and global organisations".
The solution is designed to meet an increasing industry need for open virtualisation solutions without compromising performance, scalability, security or features. The virtualisation offering is also a key component of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, which combines traditional data centre virtualisation features provided by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation, cloud-enabled infrastructure provided by Red Hat OpenStack, and hybrid cloud management provided by Red Hat CloudForms, to deliver an all-in-one open hybrid cloud solution for customers seeking to adopt cloud-enabled applications and infrastructure in coexistence with their traditional infrastructure and migrate over time as their needs demand.
"Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation 3.2 builds on the industry-leading performance of the KVM hypervisor to offer an enterprise-class data centre virtualisation and management solution to customers looking to save costs as well as implement an open architecture," said Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, Virtualisation, Red Hat.
"With the addition of Storage Live Migration and third-party plug-ins from our industry partners, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation's compelling value proposition to customers virtualising Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows workloads alike gets stronger."
