  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 2.2 Features
  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager for Servers is a feature-rich server virtualization management system
    that provides advanced capabilities for hosts and guests, including:

    New! Import and Export: Import and Export Red Hat Enterprise VMs in OVF (open virtualization format).
    New! V2V Conversion Tools: Import Red Hat Enterprise Linux guests from Red Hat Enterprise Linux/Xen or VMWare. Additional converters coming soon.
    New! Reporting Engine: Documented database schema and sample reports for extracting information from Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.
    Live migration: Allows virtual machines to be moved from one host to another while running with no affect on performance.
    New! Prioritized High availability: Critical VMs restart automatically on a new host when hardware fails. New priority feature allows you to rank VMs in case not all highly available VMs can be restarted on remaining hardware, ensuring your mission-critical applications always have priority.
    Maintenance manager: Allows hosts to be upgraded and maintained while virtual machines are running.
    Image manager: Enables thin provisioning of disk storage and use of templates to quickly build new virtual machines from standard configurations.
    System scheduler: Allows the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager to migrate virtual machines across multiple hosts to balance workloads.
    Power saver: Allows the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager to consolidate virtual machines on a smaller number of hosts during non-peak hours and power down unneeded hosts.
    New! Search Driven User Interface with tagging: Allows you to search both on virtual machine and host characteristics as well as arbitrary tags you can assign.
    Consistent Management Environment for Server and Desktop<
