Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Adds Scalability, OpenStack Integration

A new version of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (release 3.5) adds new capabilities in the areas of scalability, management, and integration with OpenStack.

The new version now offer 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.
  • Workload performance and scalability provided through non-uniform memory access (NUMA) support, which is extended to Host NUMA, Guest Pinning and Virtual NUMA. This enables customers to deploy highly scalable workloads with improved performance and minimizes resource overload related to physical memory access times.
  • 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.

Red Hat said its new release can serve as the foundation for both traditional virtualization and highly flexible cloud-enabled workloads built on OpenStack. Features for supporting cloud-enabled workloads include:

  • Integration and shared common services with OpenStack Image Service (Glance) and OpenStack Networking (Neutron), available as a Tech Preview, enabling administrators to break down silos and to deploy resources once across the infrastructure.
  • Instance types, unifying the process of provisioning virtual machines for both virtual and cloud-enabled workloads.
