virtualization documentation supports which operating systems
For these questions I'd recommend talking to a Red Hat sales rep. In my experience they're very helpful.
But I've recently been informed about the new subscription model that's valid since March 1st, 2011. I don't know if I'm allowed to copy from the presentation I've been given so see http://www.redhat.com/rhel/purchasing_guide.html.
What I can tell is that the new model is based on the number of sockets and includes a number of virtual guests. You have the choice of 1, 4 or an unlimited amount of virtual guests.
So the subscription you need is determined by the amount of sockets, the amount of virtual guests and the type of support you want.
