Red Hat Enterpise Virtualization 3.3 Debuts with OpenStack Glance and Neutron

The RHEV 3.3 release is built on top of the open-source oVirt project, which is led by Red Hat. The new release adds support for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 platform, improves performance and supports a wider array of systems.

The RHEV platform is one component in Red Hat's overall virtualization and cloud efforts, which also include the open-source OpenStack cloud platform. Red Hat's RHEV platform pre-dates the company's involvement in OpenStack, with RHEV's genesis coming from technology that Red Hat originally acquired from Qumranet in 2008.

RHEV 3.3 is now set to benefit from OpenStack innovations, Chuck Dubuque, OpenStack product manager at Red Hat, told eWEEK. As part of the RHEV 3.3 release, the OpenStack Glance Image project and the OpenStack Neutron networking project are being included.
