oVirt - Infrastructure and Management Platform for the Data Center

Karsten Wade


This presentation is for anyone who cares about Linux-based KVM virtualization. It is to give a high-level look at the new oVirt project. oVirt was restarted as an open sourcing of the RHEV management platform. The new project is releasing code from a community of interested people and vendors you recognize. The oVirt Project is an open virtualization project providing a feature-rich server virtualization management system with advanced capabilities for hosts and guests, including high availability, live migration, storage management, system scheduler, and more. By open we mean open source and open governance, done right. The presentation will cover the history of the code, how and why the community was created, and the governance and methods of the community. In addition, all the current components of the oVirt project will be discussed at a high-level.
