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

Other than price for RHEL system (or free version CentOS) and license for Guest system, you do not have to pay for anything else. RHEL/CentOS 5.5 lowered overhead of guest systems comparing to bare metal system from 30% to 5%.

You can also use separate HDD/partition for each Guest system.

If you want to test it, install CentOS 5.5 x86_64 on any PC with enough RAM you have, install and set KVM Host and create and install KVM Guests. KVM is officially part of the any newer Linux Kernel version.
