Enterprise readyRed Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3 has morethan 100 new features to improve virtualmachine performance, increase manageability,and enhance usability. It also includes scal-ability, performance, and hardware supportenhancements inherited from Red HatEnterprise Linux 6. Red Hat EnterpriseVirtualization Manager is hosted on Red HatEnterprise Linux 6, and powered by JBoss®Enterprise Application Platform. A simple,powerful graphical user interface lets you easilymanage hundreds of hosts with thousands ofVMs—ensuring you have everything you needto virtualize your most challenging workloads.Fast and scalableRed Hat Enterprise Virtualization dominatesthe independent, industry-standard bench-marks for virtualization (SPECvirt_sc2010®).As of January 1, 2012, Red Hat EnterpriseVirtualization claimed top virtualizationperformance scores for two- and four-socketservers, and had the only eight-socket serverscores published. This includes the highestoverall performance score and the highestscale-up of 552 high-performing virtualmachines on a single server.*Easy to extendRed Hat Enterprise Virtualization has the samehardware compatibility as Red Hat EnterpriseLinux. Extended reporting, virtual machineconsolidation, and chargeback capabilitiesare a few of the software options availablefrom vendors at marketplace.redhat.com.Our online marketplace helps you learn moreabout certified products that integrate withRed Hat Enterprise Virtualization.Refreshingly openRed Hat Enterprise Virtualization is builton two open source projects: kernel-basedvirtual machine (KVM) and oVirt.KVM is a robust open source projectproviding virtualization at the kernel level.KVM is supported by leading software vendors,including Red Hat, IBM, AMD, Intel, HP, andSuSE. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualizationhypervisor is built with KVM.oVirt is an ecosystem of projects offeringfeature-rich datacenter virtualizationmanagement. Red Hat has open sourcedthe entire Red Hat Enterprise Virtualizationmanagement stack, and donated it to theoVirt project. Through oVirt, the open sourceGet virtualization that puts you in control.Red Hat®Enterprise Virtualization 3 has the featuresyou need and the flexibility that will carry you into thefuture.

The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Development (RHD251) courserapidly trains programmers to develop application programson Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Topics include Linux softwaredevelopment tools such as the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC),Make, and the GDB debugger. Students also learn how to uselibrary functions and system calls to perform I/O, memory man-agement, process creation, and interprocess communicationincluding network programming with sockets.The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Kernel Internals (RHD361)course provides experienced developers an intensive,low-level examination of the Linux kernel architecture. Topicsinclude kernel compilation, debugging tools and techniques,and internal kernel APIs, including synchronization, processmanagement, and memory management. These topicsprovide a solid understanding of the kernel’s architecture, giv-ing a useful baseline from which more specialized topics taughtin other courses, such as device drivers or performance-tuning,can be addressed.Red Hat Enterprise Linux Kernel Device Drivers (RHD362)teaches experienced C programmers already familiar with theLinux kernel architecture the skills and strategies they need todevelop device drivers. The course covers device driver models(including character, block, and network device drivers); deviceinteraction (including port I/O, memory mapped I/O, interrupthandling, and DMA transfers); managing PCI and USB de-vices; strategies for deferring activity using tasklets and workqueues; device registration using the Unified Device model andthe sysfs file system; and process interaction, including basicfile operations, polling, and wait queues.RHD251, RHD361, RHD362Red Hat Developer CoursesRHD251Red HatEnterprise LinuxDevelopmentRHD361Red HatEnterprise LinuxKernel InternalsRHD362Red HatEnterprise LinuxKernel DeviceDrivers36redhat.com/training
