oVirt - Development of shared storage management system in the virualization world*
What is oVirt? Why do we need shared storage management in virtualized environment? How can we manage it safely?
oVirt is management software for server and desktop virtualization, as such it to manage shared storage used by the system managed VMs which can run on different hypervisors. The challange to do so increases as the demand for high performance rises as well as the number of managed hypervisors/vms and the potential number point of failures. In this session I’ll give quick introduction to oVirt, we’ll go over the basic oVirt storage concepts and will tackle two different approaches taken in oVirt to manage shared storage by understanding the pros of each approach and its drawbacks.
