  2. 2. ● KVM: Kernel-based Virtual Machine – Full virtualization solution for Linux • Incorporated into the Linux kernel in 2006 • Converts Linux into a hypervisor. Runs Windows, Linux and other guests • KVM architecture provides high “feature-velocity” – leverages the power of Linux
  3. 3. • Scalability – Host Scalability – theoretically unlimited. Tested 256 cores, 1 TB RAM – Guest Scalability – 16vCPU, 64 GB RAM • Industry Standards – VirtIO network and block drivers – Libvirt/CIM management interface ● Storage and networking – FC, iSCSI, NAS/NFS – Host/guest networking – multiple VLANs • Advanced Features – Memory Page sharing, swapping etc. – VM-Secure (SELinux)
  4. 4. RHEV Overview  Feature Description High Availability  Restart guest VMs from failed hosts automatically on other hosts  Move running VM from 1 host to another. 0 downtime, 0 sessions Live Migration lost. System Scheduler  Continuously load balance VMs based on resource usage/policies  Concentrate VMs on fewer servers during off-peak hrs. Save Power Saver power. Maintenance Manager  0 downtime for VMs during planned maintenance window Image Manager Snapshots, Templates, Overlays, Save / Restore  For all objects in system – VM guests, hosts, networking, storage Monitoring and Reporting etc.
