In fact, KVM is configured as the default hypervisor for using Nova. Using a hypervisor is essential for any OpenStack deployment and vendors are starting to be aware of this. Actually, VMware announced a beta version of its OpenStack distribution called OpenStack integrated VMware (VIO) this year at VMworld.
KVM is one of the most active Open Source projects today and its popularity is growing. So now it is the moment to try it and see how it works within our infrastructure, because while OpenStack gains followers and its optimal compatibility with KVM is revealed, we will see how the number of KVM infrastructures in the data centers will increase.
To be up to date about KVM, stay tuned to our blog, since we will continue discussing about this hypervisor. We will soon talk about the deployment of virtual desktops with KVM.
