Detailed Description

The oVirt Project is an open virtualization project providing a feature-rich, end to end, server virtualization management system with advanced capabilities for hosts and guests, including high availability, live migration, storage management, system scheduler, and more.

The oVirt Project is a comprehensive ecosystem of projects delivering a complete integrated platform on a well defined release schedule. These are components designed and tested to work together. In addition oVirt provides a crucial venue for user and developer cooperation, and is the first truly open and comprehensive data center virtualization management initiative.

Benefit to Fedora

Adding the oVirt project to Fedora will enable using it to build a stable and richful and large-scale virtualization environment. Combining oVirt with the current virtualization infrastructure in Fedora (libvirt + KVM) will attract users interested in constructing such a large-scale virtualization environment.

Scope

The scope of the feature includes a large-scale virtualization management system, including:

  • Data center management
  • Storage management
  • Networking management
  • VMs management (lifetime management, snapshots, migration, templating)
  • Administrator and User portal
  • User management
  • Snapshots
  • Data warehous and Reports infrastructure
  • CLI
  • SDK
  • Guest agent

How To Test

See the "Testing oVirt" section of the oVirt wiki for testing instructions.

User Experience

Users will have the ability to setup a complete, large-scale, end to end virtualization management environment.
