IDG News Service - Open-source enterprise software company Red Hat has updated its virtualization platform, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (REV), to include support for desktop virtualization, the company announced on Monday. The beta version of REV 2.2 will include a number of new programs that will allows customers to run a virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI). "It will allow you to deploy a RHEL [Red Hat Enterprise Linux] desktop, or Windows XP, or Windows 7, on a secure high-performance hypervisor platform," said Andrew Cathrow, who is a Red Hat senior product marketing manager. "By using a VDI, you are moving the [operating system] from the end user's device into the data center, where it is easier to manage and maintain." REV is a package of a number of different Red Hat applications integrated for offering virtualization capabilities to the enterprise. It comes with a virtualization management console, as well as a bare-metal hypervisor, the Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM). KVM is also included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). REV can run hosted versions of either Linux or Windows. This version of REV includes the SPICE (Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments), for remote rendering of desktops. Red Hat acquired this software in its 2008 purchase of Qumranet. The package also includes a connection broker, a Web portal users log into to fetch their desktops form their client machines. Formerly, the desktop capabilities were available as a separate stand-alone beta offering of REV, but with 2.2 the server and desktop editions are merged into a single package. "We believe it is important to have a common platform. Customers don't want to have one tool for desktops and one tool for servers," Cathrow said. In addition to the desktop virtualization, REV 2.2 introduces a number of other new features. Chief among them is the ability to import virtual machines from platforms, such as those offered by VMware, Citrix and Microsoft. To this end, REV uses the Open Virtualization Format (OVF), an open standard for virtual machine images. This is also the first release to include the V2V virtual machine conversion software, which can convert VMware or Xen virtual machines created within Red Hat Enterprise Linux into KVM virtual machines. The company also plans to add functionality that will allow the conversion of virtual machines that were built on Microsoft Windows platforms as well. "It is very simple to migrate [virtual machines] from other hypervisor platforms into REV," Cathrow said. In this release, REV also includes a data warehouse for monitoring the performance and usage of virtual machines, the data from which can be piped into most other SQL-based business intelligence tools.
