Getting Started with oVirt 3.3 is published by Packt Publishing in November 2013. This book has 140 pages in English, ISBN-13 9781783280070.
Virtualization technologies are evolving very rapidly. With advanced capabilities for hosts and guests including high availability, live migration, storage management, system scheduler, and many more, oVirt comes with the latest advancements in the field of open source virtualization. oVirt is built on the powerful Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor and on the RHEV-M management server, and it allows you to utilize the most advanced capabilities of virtualization in an easy and efficient way.
Getting Started with oVirt 3.3 talks you through the internal structure and working of oVirt 3.3 using a practical, hands-on approach. You will learn how to install and set up your own virtualization infrastructure as well as in what order you should configure your virtualization environment, what features oVirt has, and how to use them. You will also learn how easy it is to create cluster policies to control the operation of a cluster as well as how to create and use a virtual machine template.
With this book, you will learn how to run your own data centers in different configurations and about the existing opportunities for creating virtual machines. You will perform the re-balancing of clusters and quickly create dozens of virtual machines. This book will also help you create a network environment and set policies for QoS. You will also learn how to manage users and allocate resources between them. Getting Started with oVirt 3.3 teaches you everything you need to know about oVirt 3.3 and shows you how to get the most out of the technology quickly and effectively.
What you will learn from this book
- Install and run data centers, clusters, and nodes
- Configure the logical network, VNIC profiles, and QoS
- Configure, start, and clone virtual machines as well as highly available virtual machines and live migration
- Create virtual machine templates and use them
- Connect the IPA directory services for user management
- Learn about user management and resource quotas
- Make your own cluster policies to control the operation of a cluster
- Understand pools with pre-started virtual machines and learn about the approaches to troubleshooting
Getting Started with oVirt 3.3 has a tutorial-based approach to learning oVirt KVM virtualization. This book will introduce you to the various components of the oVirt engine and will show you how to implement virtualization.
Who this book is written for
