oVirt is a virtualization management application. You can use the oVirt management interface (the oVirt engine) to manage hardware nodes, storage and network resources, and to deploy and monitor virtual machines running in your data center.

  • oVirt virt-sparsify integration When using virtualization, the ability to manage disk space is critical. One of the key components for achieving this is thin provisioning. However, once storage space has been allocated it is difficult to reclaim it after the virtual machine has no more need for it (e.g. user has deleted files). This project is about integrating oVirt with a utility called virt-sparsify that is able to reclaim such space and free up valuable resources.
