  • oVirt

    oVirt website

    Anyone have any experience with oVirt ?: https://www.ovirt.org/

  • kubevirt

    Kubernetes Virtualization API and runtime in order to define and manage virtual machines.

    On the plus side if your company is good with kubernetes then everything becomes kubernetes based with harvester and rancher since a VM just becomes another kubernetes resource. This is the general direction that Rancher and Openshift are trying to move to to take on companies like vmware and even cloud solutions like openstack. If you would like to learn more about this check out the kubevirt project https://kubevirt.io/

  • SonarLint
