""The new virtualization products are intended to help advance the adoption of virtualization and enable cloud computing infrastructure deployments.

""Today marks a milestone in Red Hat's virtualization roadmap, the immediate availability of RHEV-M an operational management system for virtualizing servers as well as RHEV-H a standalone, lightweight high-performance hypervisor built on KVM," Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) CTO Brian Steven said during a press conference. "With these additions to the virtualization product family, Red Hat has dramatically lowered the bar for IT to deploy and manage virtualized environments based on the RHEL [Red Hat Enterprise Linux] platform."

"In February, Red Hat outlined its plan for a suite of KVM-based virtualization products. Red Hat previously had focused its virtualization efforts around the Xen hypervisor, but has since shifted to KVM in a big way -- in September 2008, acquiring Qumranet, the lead commercial vendor behind KVM, for $107 million."
