I been looking around for the rigth setup for implementing a Virtualization Host, environment, at home. The simplest implementation that would work perfect, I guess, would just be installing the KVM related packages, however I would like to be able to browse manage the gust systems, combined with CLI access.
Below I have listed those projects or products I have been looking into… I have added a few coments on recommend distros and features.
KaresansuiKaresansui Project - Xen/KVM Virtualization Management Application
- Fedora 18+
Archipel - Home
- Seems to require a few physical servers, and I one have one
VMWare Server / vSphere
- I have skipped this for now, as I would like to go with a open solution
OpenStack (and flavors)
- “my comment”: Super perfect project/product, works awesome… but to me it seems completly overkill for a home solution, to many compontens, configuration and requirements for a home solution. But there are guides out there, with instructions on how to install it on one machine. I have tried it, and it works, but again I think it’s too complicated for home use.
- seems to be available in the OpenSUSE reps. – have anyone any experiences installing it on one host?
So why this posting on the forum, see I would like to know, ask, if there was a virtualization project that was super perfect for OpenSUSE, that at the sametime provided me with a web based management interface, that some one could recommend?
Currently I’m on (Fedora) planing to try out the oVirt, as it seems to be just what I’m looking for… would have loved to have installed it on OpenSuse, but can’t find any instructions or reps
So to sum up:
- OpenStack on OpenSuSE - has anyone experiences in installing it on one host, running SuSE?
- Have I missed out a super perfect project for doing virtualization, with web management support, on SuSE?
- Does anyone know, if oVirt are support on OpenSuSE … yet? or do we have a build project ?
