C12G Labs has just announced that it has joined the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA), a consortium committed to fostering the adoption of open virtualization technologies including Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). The OpenNebula project is excited to join an interoperable ecosystem of components around KVM. These are also great news for the OpenNebula community where KVM is already a popular virtualization platform.
The mission of the Open Virtualization Alliance is to foster the adoption of KVM as an open virtualization alternative, accelerate the emergence of an ecosystem of third-party solutions around KVM, increase overall awareness and understanding of KVM, encourage interoperability, promote best practices and highlight examples of customer successes. The Open Virtualization Alliance today announced broad industry support and adoption with the addition of 65 new members to the consortium. Governing members of the Open Virtualization Alliance include HP, IBM, Intel, and Red Hat.
