Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3 features previewed

BOSTON — New details have emerged regarding Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.

Chuck Dubuque, a Red Hat product marketing manager, shared the details during a RHEV overview session here at the Red Hat Summit. He said a RHEV 3 beta will come out later this summer, and the final version will be out by the end of 2011.

RHEV 3 will support the following density numbers:

  • 4,096 cores per CPU
  • 64 TB of RAM per host
  • Up to 32 vCPUs per guest (with support for 64 vCPUs in the works)
  • 1 TB RAM per guest
  • 200 hosts per cluster

In addition, RHEV 3 will no longer require Windows to run its management component. The release will not include storage live migration, but Dubuque said “we’re working on that now” and it should be available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 or 6.3, due sometime next year.
