We are using RHEV for the virtualization of servers in our environment. Currently, we are using RHEV for nonproduction servers. The best part of RHEV is an open source product in virtualization technology, it is vendor-independent software and a lot more cost-effective and flexible than proprietary solutions. We are managing 100 plus Virtual machines with RHEV in our environment and using the hardware efficiently as well as saving the cost of our project.
