Red Hat Speeds Up Open Source Virtualization Race
KVM-based Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 enables extra-large virtual machines and better live migration across more storage systems than before.

It also cited the continued high performance of its kernel virtual machine, or open source KVM, in its Dec. 5th announcement.
