Detailed Description

oVirt Node is a small host image that provides libvirt service via KVM to host virtual machines. The oVirt node can be run in standalone mode or in conjunction with the oVirt management 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 of a CD or USB key. This feature consists of three parts, ovirt-node.rpm, ovirt-node-recipe.rpm, ovirt-node-spin.iso
