Manage your virtualized networks
oVirt manages virtual machines, storage and virtualized networks.
Easy to use web interface
oVirt is a virtualization platform with an easy-to-use web interface.
KVM based virtualization management
oVirt is powered by the Open Source you know - KVM on Linux.
It's a new year with new opportunities for oVirt to show up its virtualization features! We're getting ready for DevConf.CZ in Brno next week, and FOSDEM in Brussels the week after that! We look forward to meeting European developers and sysadmins to share your experiences!
Here's what happened in December of 2016.
The oVirt Project is pleased to announce the availability of all-new principal documentation for the oVirt 4.0 branch.
There are many people out there who are content to use software without documentation, preferring to muddle through the software based on past experience with similar software or just the desire to put the software through its paces.
We all do this; I could not tell you the last time I looked at documentation for Firefox or Chrome, because I've been using browsers for over 20 years and seriously, what else is there to learn? Until I learn about a cool new feature from a friend or a web site.
Universidad de Sevilla
When one of the largest universities in Spain needed a virtualization solution to host their virtual desktop interface program, UDS Enterprise helped the institution find a virtualization solution that delivered superior flexibility at a much lower cost than proprietary solutions.
That solution would be oVirt. Today, more than 3,000 students use this virtual desktop infrastructure, with the prospect of the rest of the student body participating as the program grows.
