oVirt is a small host image that provides libvirt service and hosts virtual machines (oVirt Node) and a Web-based virtual machine management console (oVirt Server Suite). It is built using existing open source components (libvirt, kvm, collectd, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and freeIPA). Presently, the oVirt Server Suite only manages the oVirt Node, but the goal is to be able to manage other node types and hypervisors in the future.
