Open Virtualization Management with oVirt Project

Finally there’s really good open source alternatives for virtualization management. Yesterday oVirt-project made announcement:

The oVirt project today announced that Canonical, Cisco, IBM, Intel, 
NetApp, Red Hat and SUSE have joined together to help create a new
open source community for the development of open virtualization
platforms, including virtual management tools to manage the
Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. With the oVirt
project, the industry gains an open source, openly governed
virtualization stack.

What this means actually is that Red Hat finally open sourced their RHEV-M and RHEV-H. While we need to wait while for official release (Jan, 2012) you can start testing it today.
