oVirt is the newly announced project focused on open source virtualization management, including high availability, live migration, storage management, system scheduler, and more. Earlier this week, I had a chance to sit down with Carl Trieloff, Red Hat's technical director for cloud, to discuss the ins and out of oVirt. Among the topics we cover are:
- What is oVirt?
- How does oVirt relate to the Open Virtualization Alliance and the KVM hypervisor?
- How will licensing and code contributions work?
- What's the governance model?
- What comes next?
