Red Hat Virtualization

Open, scalable virtualization

Red Hat Virtualization is an open, software-defined platform that virtualizes Linux and Microsoft Windows workloads. Built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), it features management tools that virtualize resources, processes, and applications—giving you a stable foundation for a cloud-native and containerized future.

Red Hat Virtualization delivers a lower total cost of ownership—when compared to other solutions. One customer’s return-on-investment was more than 100% with a payback period of less than 6 months.

Affordable virtualization

Red Hat Virtualization has a lower total cost of ownership year over year when compared to other virtualization solutions.

Leading performance

Apps running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Red Hat Virtualization tend to run faster than on other industry hypervisors.

Integrate with anything

It’s open source, so it can be designed to work with anything—but we also test and certify Red Hat Virtualization on a range of servers and hardware.

Easy to set up

Intuitive tools help you start using Red Hat Virtualization quickly, and even help you automate migration from another vendor.

Easy to use

Everything you need to create, start, stop, pause, migrate, and template single VMs in minutes or mass deployments in hours.

Easy to manage

A single management component lets you provision new VMs, clone existing ones, and see how it all works together.
