Get Started with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3

Updated 2014-08-27T13:32:34+00:00

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) provides a means of creating, starting, stopping, and managing virtual machines. Because RHEV is an enterprise-quality product, in the process of configuring RHEV you need to set up a RHEV Manager, hypervisors, authentication, storage, and networking and be able to manage CPU, memory, and other computing resources.

This guide provides a checklist and links that let you take two different approaches to setting up your own RHEV 3.3 environment:

  • Minimal RHEV environment: This minimal setup consists of a RHEV Manager, a single virtualization Host, and local storage.

  • Standard RHEV environment: In this approach, you create a RHEV environment that integrates into your company's computing infrastructure.
