Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops
Desktop virtualization made easy[RV187499]
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) is a complete virtualization management solution for server and desktop virtualization and the first enterprise-ready, fully open-source virtualization platform. It is based on the powerful Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor and the oVirt open virtualization management platform, both projects begun at Red Hat and released to the open source community. RHEV represents a true strategic virtualization alternative to organizations looking for better total cost of ownership, faster return on investment, accelerated break-even, and avoidance of vendor lock-in when compared to proprietary virtualization vendors.
Improve data security
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops helps organizations safeguard their data by moving desktop environments into the secure datacenter behind corporate firewalls, helping to reduce the risk of theft and meet strict government regulations and data privacy laws.
Lower infrastructure costs
By centralizing desktop environments into the datacenter, provisioning new desktop environments, maintaining existing systems, and monitoring desktop activity all become as simple as a few mouse clicks.
Desktop environments can be centrally created, monitored, and managed—reducing or even eliminating the need for on-site support.
Create business continuity and data agility
By eliminating the dependencies between the operating system and the hardware, desktop environments reside within isolated and portable virtual machines, allowing mobility throughout the datacenter. Additionally, desktops are easily included in datacenter backup plans, creating an even greater level of continuity.
Improve application and client flexibility
Users can access multiple types of operating environments from various types of client devices. This provides application flexibility to Windows- and Linux-based applications, regardless of what client they run.
|Architecture||• SSL encryption— Ensures a secure data transmission from the client.
• SELinux and sVirt— Kernel-level security policies that provide complete isolation and protection of data.
• Memory overcommitment— Assign more memory than is physically available on the host.
• Highest VM density— Support hundreds of virtual desktops on a single host, maximizing hardware utilization..
• CPU and core abstraction— Use up to 64 virtual CPUs presented as any combination of virtual processors and virtual cores.
