oVirt Node is a small host image that provides libvirt service via KVM to hosts virtual machines. The Ovirt node can be run in standalone mode or in conjunction with the ovirt managment server, a web-based virtual machine management console. The ovirt Node Image is a livecd-based image that can be installed to the hosts physical storage, or run as a live image off a cd or usb key. This feature consists of three parts, ovirt-node.rpm, ovirt-node-recipe.rpm, ovirt-node-spin.iso
Benefit to Fedora
Easy way for users of Fedora and Ovirt to download Ovirt Node Image. Will not require and ISO image to be built and distributed in a RPM.
