Red Hat and Symantec together offer enterprise IT organizations a highly available and highly scalable virtualization infrastructure for traditional and cloud-enabled applications.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization provides an enterprise-ready virtualization platform derived from oVirt, an open source community developed virtualization platform. The hypervisor in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is based on the Kernel based Virtual Machine (KVM), a small form-factor, scalable, high performance hypervisor based on Linux that provides the same security, performance, and scalability as built into Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization includes Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization-Manager (RHEV-M), a GUI based centralized management interface to manage virtual machines (VMs). Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enables IT organizations to manage a highly scalable virtualization infrastructure for traditional and cloud-enabled workloads–all while maintaining the high business continuity that business needs require.
Symantec™ Storage Foundation High Availability solutions provide storage management, high availability and disaster recovery in heterogeneous storage and server environments. These include Symantec™ Storage Foundation powered by Veritas, Symantec™ Cluster Server powered by Veritas, Symantec™ Storage Foundation Cluster File System, Symantec™ Dynamic Multi-Pathing and Veritas Operations Manager. These solutions enable flexible and agile infrastructures, while maintaining the highest levels of availability and reducing storage costs.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and solutions from the Symantec Storage Foundation High Availability suite combined provide the ability to run enterprise class applications on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization virtual machines (VMs). These VMs can be live migrated across physical servers and replicated across different data centers, using either SAN or commodity non-shared storage. The latter provides the ability to grow compute and storage together, and for a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization cluster to host additional applications by simply adding new servers while meeting enterprise class requirements.
