KVM is not part of the main CentOS distro, it is in CentOS extras for 
CentOS-5.  The stable version is quite old (kvm-36-1).  Newer versions 
than that are in our testing repository:


Whether or not they can be used in production is totally dependent on 
your unique situation, your specific hardware and what you plan to 
install on the VMs.

At some point in the future, Red Hat is going to release KVM technology 
in RHEL ... when that happens, then I would call it "good enough" to use 
in the enterprise without reservation.

It certainly may already be "good enough" for your needs as released in 
our extras repo ... the only real way to tell is try it in your 
situation is to try it and see if it meets your needs.
