Red Hat supports up to four customers operating simultaneously with the virtualization functions (based on the core-based virtualized hyperviser) that come with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server. If you plan to call on five Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers per pair of sockets, we recommend you purchase Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions with Smart Virtualization or Red Hat OpenStack Platform. These solutions target use cases for dense virtualization and are generally less costly for these types of deployments. For more information on more complex virtual environments, see “Scenarios and Subscription Recommendations.” If all your subscriptions expire and you don`t have other active subscriptions in your organization, you reserve the right to use the software under applicable licensing conditions.

When you provide Red Hat Enterprise Linux on physical hardware, your subscriptions are based on the number of pairs of sockets in the systems used. This model is best suited to make available on physical hardware or as virtual instances in the cloud. When you provide Red Hat Enterprise Linux in a virtual environment, your subscriptions are based on the number of virtual instance pairs that run the product. This model is best suited to low- and medium-density virtual environments. Red Hat products are provided by instance or installation, allowing access to all subscription benefits during the duration of the subscription. Red Hat defines open hybrid cloud as an environment that includes physical, virtual, private or public cloud deployments. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux portfolio has subscriptions that serve all these environments.
