ETIQUETAS: KVM-en | Linux-en | Open source

KVM is a hypervisor included in the main Linux kernel. It is really good as hypervisor, but like all hypervisors, a set of tools is needed to manage it. In this post we talk about one of them, oVirt, thanks to this article written by vMiss.net

oVirt is a set of Open Source management tools that runs on different Linux distributions. It has interesting enterprise features, such as high availability, load balancing, and support for local and shared storage. In addition, the new oVirt 3.5 features include the merge of multiple snapshots and the introduction of Optaplanner, that allows to check if a virtual machine can be within a cluster when a user attempts to deploy it on a server that does not have enough resources.

In addition to oVirt, there are other KVM management tools such as Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and OpenStack. We’ll talk about them in forthcoming articles.

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
