RHEV 3.1 is Live!!

Hi folks,

It’s been a busy few weeks so I haven’t had much time left to do things like blog or get my hands dirty in technology. Luckily, things are winding down now for me enough that I’ll be able to do both over the next several weeks. And this is perfect timing as Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is live as of yesterday.

RHEV 3.1 adds some much requested features such as Storage Live Migration, Live SnapShots, and a bunch of other really useful, not to mention highly requested, tools. As I redeploy my lab environment in Research Triangle Park, I’ll be testing out these new features and reporting back to you from here. More importantly, I’ll be testing against Clustered ONTAP (I have a few posts where I refer to it by its old name, ONTAP Cluster-Mode) and talking about how the new RHEV features work with NetApp as well as use cases.

Here are the things that I really look forward to testing and blogging on:

  • RHEV Linux CLI
  • Bridge-less networks
  • Live Snapshots
  • Direct LUNs
  • Storage Live Migration

What about you? Is there something you want looked at in the context of RHEV 3.1 and/or NetApp? Leave a question in the comments section.

  1. What i don’t see is the hotplug CPU….
    It’s a pity. We were expecting that functionality for this year…

    Anyway, it’s a good update.


    1. Kitai,

      Thanks for dropping by.. I agree that hotplugging CPU’s would have been good. I’ll ask what the holdup is.

Agree? Disagree? Something to add to the conversation?
