Red Hat Virtualization????

hi guys
right now I support Vmware as virtualization platform but on this comparison chart make me think about Vmware going down I mean Red Hat has the same features and it is cheaper...

I really would like to know
who has used it?
is that cheap as they say or promote?
any real experiences on this Red Hat Virtualization?

thanks a lot

Looks like you may plan on a migration based on detailed comparison of the
VMware VS Red Hat virtualization.

Good luck.

Re: Red Hat Virtualization????

Shalom,

I use CentOS virtualization, which is RH.

I've built clusters in there, DR systems, development systems, upgrade testing systems.

What I like about it is the ability to move a system around as a single file.

It is a solid alternative to vmware and has a lower cost of ownership, especially if you go the CentOS route.

I have had no issues with either RHEL VM or Oracle VM.

Re: Red Hat Virtualization????

hi,

CentOS is RedHat Enterprise without the trade mark / copyright.


diff :

1) CentOS build from the Source RPM of RHEL (from redhat)
2) RHEL get faster update then CentOS because, CentOS need to wait to get the source rpm from the RHEL repository (sometime centOS community come with their own patches, but there is very small delay when the Redhat Update)
3) CentOS free version of RHEL ( which means there is no license fee)

Hi Karlo,

Yes, CentOS is the free variant of the RHEL.
It is very similar to that of RHEL but as its free there wont be any official support.
For more info -
