Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6 Offers High-Performance Linux-based Workloads

Mar 15, 2016 :

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6.

This new version of Red Hat’s KVM-based virtualization solution offers increased performance, scale, and security for high-intensity Linux workloads.

It also updates user experience and management tools to help reduce cost and time of VMware migrations by eliminating the need to purchase a third-party migration tool. Lowering the costs and sprawl of proprietary virtualization solutions is a common customer challenge addressed by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

Customized for large computing environments like SAP or Oracle deployments, as well as compute and graphic-intensive workstations, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization demonstrated a 36 percent performance advantage compared to other virtualization solutions in SPECvirt 2013 testing.1

The new PCI Device Assignment feature is designed to accelerate high-performance workloads, such as CAD/CAM. This enables a direct pass through of physical devices to virtual machines helping some customers to achieve near bare-metal performance for critical resources while reducing overhead of multiple, expensive workstations.



Increased Performance and Scalability
  • Hotplug memory support provides dynamic, one-click memory scaling, working with underlying infrastructure to give an application more memory “on the fly” while avoiding disruption to the application runtime.
  • PCI device assignment enables administrators to directly assign a physical adaptor or device to a virtual machine, allowing for near bare-metal performance for graphics and networking-intensive computing.

Locally in Malaysia, YTL Communications utilizes Red Hat for its 4G service nationwide.
