Nevertheless, most organizations are now moving to multi-vendor strategies for virtualization. While a single vendor may have made sense when organizations we at less than 50% virtualization, it now makes sense for customers to foster choice in virtualization just as they have with other datacenter technologies.

RHEV is a natural choice for Linux virtual machines because the KVM hypervisor leverages the power of Linux to provide unbeatable performance for all workloads, Linux or Windows.

RHEV handles basic server consolidation and hardware abstraction.

RHEV can serve as a platform for private cloud, using the RHEV User Portal, Red Hat Cloud products, or products from our RHEV ecosystem partners.
