This is a huge milestone for the RHV team as 4.2 delivers more in the themes of ease-of-use, automation, and continued tighter integration with the Red Hat portfolio. As many of you know we have been working on this for awhile –

Hi folks, in this post I wanted to share with you some of the cool activities we have happening next week at the Red Hat Summit in San Francisco. For virtualization there’s a ton of things going on – to say that we are ‘RHV’ed up is an understatement! (sorry, @RedHatRex wrote that joke…) Here’s a short video that will get you goin on RHV:

We are pleased to announce the Beta 3 release of Red Hat Virtualization 4.2, the latest version of our Red Hat Virtualization platform. This follows the release of the Beta 2 on February 16 of this year, as we push closer to the public release of Red Hat Virtualization 4.2 in May.
While many of the new features were highlighted in the previous announcements in January and February, it is worth noting the addition of some additional new features to this beta release.

In the last several weeks, many of you have likely heard about the new security threat that involves the ability to exploit common features of modern CPUs. These attacks, known as “Meltdown” and “Spectre” can impact both bare metal and virtual servers. Red Hat Virtualization has added the “IBRS Family” of CPUs to the supported Cluster CPU type as a means to help protect against the IPRS and IBPM attacks that would result in guest attacks.

We are pleased to announce the Beta 2 release of Red Hat Virtualization 4.2, the latest version of our Red Hat Virtualization platform. This follows the release of the Beta 1 on January 4 of this year, as we push closer to the public release of Red Hat Virtualization 4.2 in a few months.
While we covered many of the new features in the previous announcement, we would like to call attention to one of them as well as highlight another, specifically to involve the community in the feature testing:

I recently had the pleasure of linking up with one of my favorite Red Hat colleagues (David “Pinky” Pinkerton) from Australia while we were both in Southeast Asia for a Red Hat event. We both have a propensity for KVM and Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) in particular, and he brought up a fantastic topic – truly segregated networks to support other security requirements. The reason came up because he had a “high security” client that needed to keep different traffic types separated within RHV, as the VMs were used to scan live malware. And that is why I made the comment about the (justifiably) paranoid.
Let’s take a look. |

We’re proud to announce that one of our partners, HPE, posted results to the SPECvirt_sc2013 benchmark that affirms the leadership position for Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 Server. RHEL with KVM has held several performance records for 2, 4, and 8 socket results over the last few years and as of August 17, 2017, RHV now holds the 2 socket record.

Let’s imagine you’ve had many meetings, internal deliberations, workshops, and decided to put your “Continuous Integration/Continuous Development” environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP). You’ve defined a problem, a strategy, and a solution. It’s now time to decide where in your datacenter to deploy it.

It has been over five years since the release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0. In just under 3 months (September 30) it will hit the end of it’s support lifecycle, and we will retire the 3.x version. At that same time, Red Hat Virtualization 4.0 will have been out for 13 months, and 4.1 for 5 months.
If you have not yet started the upgrade plan and process from version 3 to version 4, now is the time.
