qemu-diskp is a FUSE mounter to mount virtual disk images. Most virtual machine environments provide a raw disk model to the operating system(s) they host. Typically this raw disk is stored as a simple file rather than a dedicated hardware device. Since the file is a bit-image of what would normally be an actual hardware disk, it holds a complete disk layout. This makes it difficult to mount or manage each of the filesystems within that virtual disk image by the host machine, especially if the file for the image is itself a composite, such as a qemu qcow2 file. This project provides a FUSE based filesystem that presents each of the partitions in a full disk image as individual files. Those files may then be accessed by user-level applications (e.g. fsck or mke2fs) or loop-back mounted, enabling normal file system tools to examine or modify their contents.
Symbolic is an enterprise platform designed to build, configure, and manage your huge and globally distributed data centers. It features cloud computing, Web manager virtual environments (Xen, KVM, and libvirt), clustering support, custom operations and scripts support, and user and role definitions.
slkvm is an application to provide some system tools to work with clustering and virtualization. It focuses on depending on as few external tools as possible but to also support as many virtualization technologies as possible. It works in a cluster environment where heartbeat runs virtual machines of nodes that have failed. It builds an "unheaded" cluster to avoid having a clear point of failure. It is able to build a two node cluster with everything redundant. It avoids compiling a new kernel or newer version of applications, so you can benefit from Debian security updates.
KaOS is a lightweight, multi-purpose embedded Linux platform designed for virtualization and cloud computing applications. KaOS is based on Linux KVM and is a true enterprise grade hypervisor platform. KaOS makes it easy to deploy KVM based virtualization solutions. KaOS is a lightweight platform, less than 10MB in size. The SDK provides everything necessary to rebuild the platform and comes with scripts to assist with building a KaOS-enabled Linux kernel. KaOS has a menu-driven CLI called AppQueue and a management process that replaces init and other functions called kattach.
Proxmox is a Debian-based bundle of OpenVZ, KVM, and a Web based management GUI. It supports high-performance container-based virtualization of Linux workloads, as well as lower performance KVM hardware assisted virtualization. It supports any hardware that the Linux kernel supports, and will permit live migration of running OSIs with shared storage configurations (DRBD, CIFS, NFS, etc.). It comes bundled with many virtual appliance templates (Drupla, Moodle, FreePBX, etc.) and generic OSI appliances (Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu), as well as a faculty for building arbitrary Linux based appliances. It can be used for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and virtual server infrastructure (VSI). It supports almost any x86/x64 OS in a KVM container and any Linux-based OS in OpenVZ.
CloudStack is a complete package for managing cloud computing and virtual infrastructure. It enables users to easily build, manage, and deploy private and public clouds. CloudStack provides an integrated software solution for delivering virtual data centers as a service, delivering all of the essential components used to build, deploy, and manage multi-tier and multi-tenant cloud applications in a simple-to-install software package. The CloudStack platform includes a management server with a Web user interface and extensions to support a variety of hypervisor software (e.g. XenServer, Xen VMware, and KVM) installed on computing nodes running across multiple networks. The centralized management server scales linearly, eliminating the need for intermediate cluster-level management servers. CloudStack automatically configures a guest virtual machine’s networking, storage, and authentication settings. The software can also integrate with physical components such as switches, routers, load balancers, and firewalls.
