Ovirt Node Spin


oVirt Node is a small scaled down version of Fedora used solely to hosts virtual machine guests.


Detailed Description

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.
