Discontinued products and services are nothing new, of course, but what is new with the coming of the cloud is the discontinuation of services to which people have entrusted a lot of personal or otherwise important data — and in many cases devoted a lot of time to creating and organizing that data. As businesses ratchet up their use of cloud services, they’re going to struggle with similar problems, sometimes on a much greater scale. I don’t see any way around this — it’s the price we pay for the convenience of centralized apps and databases — but it’s worth keeping in mind that in the cloud we’re all guinea pigs, and that means we’re all dispensable.

Virtual Servers

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) is a complete virtualization management solution for server and desktop virtualization and the first enterprise-ready, fully open-source virtualization platform. It is based on the powerful Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor and the oVirt open virtualization management platform, both projects begun at Red Hat and released to the open source community. RHEV represents a true strategic virtualization alternative to organizations looking for better total cost of ownership, faster return on investment, accelerated break-even, and avoidance of vendor lock-in when compared to proprietary virtualization vendors.

RHEV Manager

Our core product, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers, includes the RHEV Manager management system and the RHEV Hypervisor, and supports server operating systems as virtual guests.

RHEV Desktops

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops is available as an add-on, and provides support for desktop operating systems as virtual guests and support for desktop management functionality.
