Linux Foundation To Support The Development Of KVM Hypervisor

Filed under
Linux

The Linux Foundation has adopted Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) as one of its ‘Collaborative Projects’, to promote the development of the open source hypervisor KVM (kernel-based virtual machine).

OVA was founded in 2011 by Red Hat and IBM to advance the alternative to proprietary virtualization technologies through increased marketing, education and advocacy, and already includes participation of more than 250 companies. One of the criteria for joining the Alliance is to produce or use a product or service that is based on KVM.

“By moving to the Linux Foundation as a Collaborative Project, OVA will gain expertise and an extended network that will benefit KVM for the long run,” commented Al Gillen, vice president of system software at IDC.

The announcement was made at the annual LinuxCon Europe event in Edinburgh.

Dale Raby: How do you Fedora?

Dale started using Linux around 1999 when he became disconcerted with his Windows 95 computer and a young clerk in an office supply store told him about Linux. “I started reading some of the magazines, most notably Maximum Linux and eventually got to know their senior editor, Woody Hughes and Show Me the Code columnist Mae Ling Mak,” said Raby. His first distribution was Mandrake 6.5 which came in a box with a boot floppy. Raby manages a small gun shop in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is also an author with four published books: The Post-Apocalyptic Blacksmith, 777 Bon Mots for Gunslighers and Other Real Men, The Wives of Jacob I, and In the Beginning. Read more
