Red Hat's premier server environment delivers additional capabilities over those provided in the base product by offering fully integrated server and storage virtualization and high availability clustering capabilities. It is ideal for multi-system deployments.

For Corporate/enterprise applications, Databases, ERP, CRM, SOA, Grid deployments and dynamic & growing server environments. Ideal for blade/rack server consolidation and high availability configurations.

Features Summary

  • Unlimited virtualized guests. Multiple operating systems, multiple versions, multiple performance and security settings, all running on the same server.
  • Storage virtualization. Allows multiple guests, running on the same or different servers, to access and share logical storage volumes and file systems. Storage virtualization allows customers to reap the full benefits of server virtualization.
  • High Availability Clustering & Failover. Provides application and guest operating system failover.
  • Architecture support for virtualization. Supported at product release: x86, x86-64; Technology preview at product release: Itanium2
  • Virtualized guest hardware requirements
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5 and 5: None (x86 systems must support PAE)
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and third party operating systems: requires hardware virtualization technology, as provided by AMD-V or Intel VT processors.
  • Covered under the Open Source Assurance program

Supported Architectures

  • Intel & AMD x86/x86-64
  • Intel Itanium2
  • IBM POWER

Example Server Environments

  • Standalone server
