In addition, it supports virtual machine connectivity through software-defined networks, it is compatible with Nvidia vGPU and Virt-v2v now supports Debian / Ubuntu, EL and virtual machines based on Windows.

Finally, a set of ovirt-ansible-roles packages that help users with administration tasks have been added, the administration portal has been redesigned to improve the interface and a new VM portal has been added for non-administrators that optimizes the user experience.
