Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.5, enabling organizations to deploy an IT infrastructure that services traditional virtualization workloads while creating an enterprise-grade foundation for cloud infrastructure. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.5 delivers standardized services for mission critical workloads, and offers IT organizations greater visibility into provisioning, configuring and monitoring of their virtualization infrastructure, all based on open standards.
Red Hat is a recognized leader in the scale and performance of virtual machine workloads, and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.5 extends this leadership with support for four terabytes (4 TB) of memory per host, 4 TB of vRAM, and 160 vCPUs per virtual machine.
Notable new features in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.5 include lifecycle management and provisioning of bare-metal hosts via integration with Red Hat Satellite, compute resource optimization through advanced real-time analytics with oVirt Optimizer integration. This enables users to identify the balance of resource allocation that best meets their needs while provisioning new virtual machines and enhanced disaster recovery via improved storage domain handling, providing support for migrating storage domains between different datacenters supported by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, enabling partner technologies to deliver site recovery capabilities.
