applications (Oracle, SAP, etc)?
* Do you need a commitment to provide long term maintenance of the platform?
If you want or need any of these, then you will not not get them with
oVirt - however, you may get them with oVirt based products (and in
particular with RHEV). And while we work hard to ensure that oVirt works

results in a more stable release which is supported by Red Hat than what
you get with oVirt.
That said, if you want to try newer features, you will get them 6 months
earlier in oVirt than in RHEV - so I would encourage people to use oVirt
for their test and preprod environments, and consider RHEV for
