Red Hat Cloud Forms 1.1 and RHEV 3.1 Advance the Open Cloud

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.1 (RHEV 3.1) is becoming generally available this wek, providing a series of updates that help to narrow the gap with VMware's virtualization platform.

RHEV 3.1 is the second major release of Red Hat's virtualization platform this year, following RHEV 3.0, which debuted in January. Chuck Dubuque, senior manager, Product Marketing for Red Hat Virtualization Infrastructure, explained to Datamation that the new Live Storage Migration feature is likely the most important addition in the release. Yet he noted that the feature is initially being offered only as a tech preview.

CloudForms 1.0 was first released in June of this year and is now being updated to version 1.1. Bryan Che, general manager of the Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat told Datamation that CloudForms 1.1 provides new look and feel updates as well as a new API.

That new API is all about providing an interface for workload automation.

"These are primarily RESTful interfaces into CloudForms," Che explained.
