As many of you are aware, Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) provides ways to access its functionality via REST APIs or SDKs (Python, Java, Ruby), and recently Ansible has also joined this growing list.
Red Hat Virtualization 4.1 and later now includes support for the Ansible automation tool. Ansible can be used to configure systems, deploy software, and perform rolling updates. Ansible provides modules that allow you to

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.

As Red Hat engineers, we are always looking to incorporate features that empower administrators and decision makers. Our goal is to enable them to be proactive, efficient, and to help them maximize value from their infrastructure.
To this end, we are currently working on how to significantly improve the reporting and metrics API in Red Hat Virtualization Manager, our management platform for virtualized resources. Until recently, Red Hat Virtualization relied on native reports and data warehouse engines to provide

As applications are designed, redesigned, or even simply thought about at a high level, we frequently think about technical barriers along side business needs. Business needs may dictate that a new architecture move forward, but technical limitations can sometimes counter how far forward – unless there is something to bridge the gap. The new Neutron network integration between Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) provides such a bridge for business and technical solutions.

This past August, Red Hat announced the availability of Red Hat Virtualization 4.0, the latest virtualization release that aims to help IT organizations modernize their infrastructure, enhance their virtualization management and automation, and deploy advanced networking functionality. As a Software Engineer, I know that releases are exciting and early adopter customers eagerly await for the opportunity to deploy the latest features. However, the the upgrade process has not always been seamless. Through my work with the Customer Support Team, we have been exploring tools to streamline and simplify the upgrade process.
