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.
Collax V-Cube+ is a HA cluster management suite based on a 64bit Linux system and KVM to provide server virtualization. It offers solutions for single virtualization hosts, as well as high availability management on two or more nodes, allowing embedded HA storage using DRBD and iSCSI. By using live snapshots, automatic live migration, and incremental backups, the availability of virtual machines is increased tremendously in case of hardware and software maintenance or even hardware failures. Virtual network switches and the protocols GVRP, LLDP, and RSTP help to set up a virtual DMZ.
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.
Karesansui is a virtualization management console with a Web-based user interface that supports Linux servers. It allows virtual machine creation, start up, suspension, snapshot, and CPU/RAM allocation, all from a Web browser. The Xen hypervisor is supported. A RESTful architecture is implemented with HTTP-based APIs.
NiftyName is a system for creating and managing virtual machine pools and all related components such as storage, private and public networks. It is intended to be used as a free alternative to Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure. All components have been designed for multi-site active redundancy, though this is not supported yet. Its architecture is based on documented XML-RPC (SSL) Web services, so you can make your own derivative tools for it. Console and GTK+ client applications are provided. VMs are based on KVM. It supports IPv6, private VLANs, multiple interfaces, user/client management, permissions, and roles.
Nuxis is an integrated solution for virtualization management. Some of its features are centralized management of nodes/physical machines and virtual machines, management of virtual networks, storage management, ISO management, monitoring and statistics charts, backup/restore of appliance configurations, import from and export to other virtualization systems using the OVF format, access control, support for multiple operating systems on 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, including Linux and Windows, paravirtualized hardware acceleration drivers, live migrate, PXE boot, Web management, storage management with LVM, and more.
OpenNode is a server virtualization solution that provides an easy-to-use (CentOS/RHEL based) bare-metal ISO installer that supports both OpenVZ container-based and KVM full virtualization technology on the same host. The OpenNode ISO installer will set up a minimal CentOS server system with the following features: a RHEL kernel (provided by OpenVZ project) modified to support both openvz and kvm virtualization, libvirt management interface support for openvz and kvm hypervisors, func (https://fedorahosted.org/func/) client support for central management purposes, and VM template downloads provided by the opennode TUI utility.
