OVirtFosdem13 Dear *,

In the case you or your company will be currently evaluating a new or another enterprise-level computer virtualization product like VmWare ESX and Microsoft Hyper V – Windows Server Virtualization, or if you will be curious about virtualization technology then I inform you you will have the opportunity to ask all the questions you have on this topic during FOSDEM’13 – Brussels / 2 & 3 February 2013 – @ the OVirt booth.

For those ones from BeNeLux who will not have to chance to be present and are interested by a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Presentation/Demo/POC then just let me know with a comment to this post and I will arrange a meeting for you.

Enclosed in this post the Wikipedia Ovirt definition as well as a Video which show how it works.

– Explanation coming from Wikipedia > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OVirt
oVirt is a free platform virtualization management web application community project started by Red Hat. oVirt is built on libvirt which could allow it to manage virtual machines hosted on any supported backend, including KVM, Xen and VirtualBox. However, oVirt is currently focused on KVM alone. oVirt is an open source software with backing from Red Hat and it is the base for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

Dear all,

I am going to do a presentation about “Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0” @ Altimate in Brussels in February 2012.
If your company or you are based in BeNeLux and are interested by this presentation, just let me know and I will try to arrange a Meeting for you.

Dear all,

BoxGrindier is going to be present @ FOSDEM’12.

Marek Goldmann will be presenting in the JBoss.org dev room on Saturday:

11:00 – 11:55 BoxGrinder : Grind your appliances easily

Here is the abstract :

BoxGrinder is a set of tools that help you grind out appliances: preconfigured disk images with the operating system and requisite software ready to run on a selected virtualization platform. With a simple text definition file and a single command BoxGrinder will build a lean appliance from scratch, convert it to a target format, and deliver it to your chosen infrastructure.

Virtualization has become almost ubiquitous in modern scalable infrastructures, with traditional dedicated hardware setups being replaced by multi-tenanted virtual environments. This change facilitates many of the beneficial properties of Cloud Computing, key amongst which is the ability to create small, function-specific appliances that enables system components to scale independently.

BoxGrinder addresses the key problem of specifying and building such appliances. It manages complexities such as software installation, dependency resolution and remote service interactions on your behalf. Existing methods can an arduously convoluted, with poor repeatability and performance characteristics; wasting time and resulting in slow and bloated appliances.  Such factors negate many of the motivating factors for embracing Cloud computing, and this is an obstacle that BoxGrinder is specifically designed to overcome. Coherent and simple to specify and run; yet fast to build and easily customized to any desired level of complexity.

In this session we will cover the basic concepts of BoxGrinder, with discussion of techniques and use-cases that illustrate how best to utilise BoxGrinder’s powerful feature-set. Finally, we will work through a live example, from text definition to a running virtual appliance.
