Virtualization promises many exciting opportunities, such as the potential to enhance productivity while significantly reducing costs. These benefits can be made restricted by the use of complicated proprietary virtualization solutions. The reason for this is although the physical server count and utility costs may reduce, many of the cost benefits are neutralised by the costs applied by proprietary virtualization vendors such as those applied for the use of Virtual memory (VRAM).
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 is a complete virtualization management solution for servers and desktops, and the first enterprise-ready, fully Open Source virtualization platform. Whether you are new to virtualization, exploring the virtues of switching to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization-based solutions, or are making the assessment around Red Hat as a second vendor within your virtualisation strategy, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 represents a true strategic alternative to organisations searching for near native levels of application performance, greater cost savings through the adoption of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 technology compared with other virtualisation vendors and a faster return-on investment (ROI) through the low cost subscription model with no requirement for Licensing and capital expense. All of the above benefits are underpinned with the benefits of Open Source and freedom from vendor lock-in.
Most proprietary vendors complicate the path to virtualization by offering multiple product editions, all with high upfront procurement costs and confusing maintenance fees. Red Hat offers a single, enterprise-ready edition of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0, under a straightforward and affordable annual subscription model. The subscription is based on the level of support you require and entitles you to software access, product patches, upgrades and access to Red Hat’s Customer Portal. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 is priced on a per-socket basis (for each hypervisor) and offers the lowest TCO and fastest ROI when benchmarked against equivalent proprietary solutions: typically 60-90% less expensive.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 is an end-to-end virtualization solution, consisting of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 Hypervisor, the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 Manager and a powerful mix of enterprise features and advanced capabilities that match and in some cases surpass those offered by proprietary virtualization solutions. Many competitor offerings are segmented into multiple product editions and require customers to buy add-on products to achieve true enterprise functionality. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 offers High Availability, Live Migration, industry leading Security based on SELinux security standards, an easy-to-use browser-based central management system, and a rich eco-system of certified hardware and software partners through a single product.
Fast and Scalable
The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 hypervisor combines the power of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Kernel with Kernel based Virtual Machine Technology (KVM); making the Linux Kernel a high speed enterprise-ready hypervisor. Deployable as a standalone, bare-metal hypervisor, or as a standalone instance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux running as a hypervisor host, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 dominates the independent, industry standard benchmark for virtualization. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 provides great cross-platform performance, is ideal for mission-critical Microsoft Windows workloads and is the obvious choice for Linux environments.
Many organisations enter into virtualization without considering their future requirements and soon realise that scaling-up proprietary solutions can be complicated and costly. With a single enterprise-ready edition of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 and a subscription model that stays the same each year, Red Hat makes cost forecasting predictable and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 affordably scalable.
