oVirt Node is the open-source counterpart to RHEV-H. In oVirt 3.6 it is based on CentOS 7. previously we had also buiolds based on CentOS 6 and Fedora.

You can read more about it here:

As oVirt Node is based on and very much integrated with Fedora's / CentOS's LiveCD mechanism, which prevents to build Node based on i.e. Gentoo or Debian.

This is the correct answer, I have closed the question because it really isn't related to OpenStack though (at this time oVirt Node/RHEV-H only include agents for integration with oVirt/RHEV, not OpenStack).

I have no idea what RHEV-H does but knowing Red Hat, the packages they ship are all open source so CentOS or Debian will ship them. Maybe they won't be as cleanly packaged and you'll need to do more studying, reading, asking and configuring on your own.
