So, what does Red Hat really signify? Well, for starters, the Red Hat virtualization moves denote more alternatives in open source virtualization tools and a new open source effort around virtualization security.
One of the Red Hat moves that will definitely catch the attention of most users is the Embedded Linux Hypervisor. This is described as a lightweight, which is also embeddable hypervisor that allows the user to run Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Microsoft Windows or virtual machines on Linux. But wait, there is actually more than this and that would be: the embedded Linux hypervisor customized virtual machines can be taken from PC to server’s USB key drive.
But to those who know many things about red hat virtualization they would probably be asking about Xen. For the record, Xen is the best identified open source technology way back.
There is actually an important difference and that is: it is given the Zen works pretty well with Linux; it’s really a given fact. However, another hypervisor called KVM, an essential element of Linux will definitely work well in red hat virtualization. We are aware that although Xen is already established in this kind of technology, KVM has done a good job, hence, developers consider it to more useful.
Therefore, Red Hat continues to explore greater possibilities and Red Hat perceives KVM-based Linux distribution having potentials in replacing distributions for operating systems which do not actually absorb the virtualization technology. Also, Red Hat distinguishes virtualization in becoming a standard operating system feature.
Finally, Red Hat through virtualization can offer security management technologies for the users so that administrators can manage to recognize policy and identity as auditing system resources and application are being run.
