From KVM


KVM is included in the mainline linux kernel since 2.6.20 and is stable and fast for most workloads.

The userspace tools are part of mainline QEMU since 1.3.

It is also available as a patch for recent Linux kernel versions and as an external module that can be used with your favorite distro- provided kernel going back up to 2.6.16, therefore including all latest versions for Enterprise Linux Distributions.
