Deploying RHEV pt6 (Importing vSphere VMs)

Yep, you read that correctly folks. I’m going to show you how to import VMs from vSphere into RHEV, right from RHEV-M. Why would you want to do that?? For starters, maybe you simply want to move virtualization platforms. You have some virtual machines that you happen to like, you just don’t feel like rebuilding them from scratch. That doesn’t make you lazy at all. It means you’re planning. Or maybe a little lazy, but mostly that you don’t want to do your work over if there wasn’t anything wrong with it in the first place.

Work smarter, not harder. Continue reading “Deploying RHEV pt6 (Importing vSphere VMs)”

Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt3

In the previous comparison posts, we took a peek at how RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V compared in some cost scenarios as well as major features. In this final installment, we’ll take a look at what I believe is the most important feature. Let me give you a hint:

RHEV does not win here. Yet. Continue reading “Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt3”

Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt 1

Today’s post will be the first in a short series of comparisons between RHEV 3, vSphere 5, and Hyper-V. This first post will cover the cost comparison between the 3. And while most of the time I like to wait until the end to announce the overall results, I think you can figure it out on your own that my own bias is towards KVM or KVM-based virtualization. So, in the spirit of “cutting to the chase”:

RHEV FTW!! Woohoo!! End of article!! (Just kidding about the last part.) Continue reading “Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt 1”
