Red Hat Summit 2011: Focus on virtualization

At the Red Hat Summit 2011, the company previewed Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 and went on the offensive against VMware.

The spotlight was on cloud computing at the Red Hat Summit 2011 in Boston, but there was still plenty of virtualization talk to go around.

Red Hat Summit attendees got a preview of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.0, the company’s server virtualization platform. RHEV 3.0 will support larger, more powerful virtual machines (VMs), and it will be able to run many more VMs on a single host. In addition, RHEV 3.0 will no longer require Windows to run its management component.

In this podcast, Red Hat Chief Technology Officer Brian Stevens discusses the company’s virtualization strategy and the benefits of open source virtualization. Navin Thadani, Red Hat’s senior director of virtualization, also talks about third-party support for RHEV and his company’s standing in the cloud market.
