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.
