The world of virtualization seems to be getting passed by with all of the advances in containers and container management technology. But don't count virtual machines out just yet. Large-scale, centralized management for server and desktop virtual machines is available now, with the free and open source software platform oVirt. This KVM-based management tool provides production-ready VM management to organizations large and small, and is used by universities, businesses, and even major airports. Join Red Hat's Brian Proffitt on a tour of oVirt plus a fun look at how VMs and containers *do* work together.
Brian Proffitt is a Principal Program Manager at Red Hat, Inc. He Served as oVirt Community Liaison and co-launched Project Atomic community infrastructure in six weeks in 2014. He is responsible for advocating and management of community outreach for the Open Source and Standards team.
oVirt is the upstream, open source community project upon which Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) is based. If you are familiar with or use VMware technologies, you should be very interested in oVirt & RHEV.
