Launchpad entry: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/virt-infrastructure
As virtualization becomes more popular, we need a way to integrate new virtualization software more easily. This spec for feisty describes improvements to what we have already.
- We aim to provide "just install it" support for an ordinary Ubuntu virtual server with the choice of KVM, OpenVZ, or XEN.
- We will provide the infrastructure to build, package and integrate existing management tools for creating, starting, stopping and maintaining the virtualized environments.
- A system administrator wants to deploy one or more physical servers partitoned into virtual machines to serve different services to his users.
- A data center administrator wants to overhaul his existing virtualisation infrastructure and is looking at various options.
- An Ubuntu developer wants to test the latest development snaphost of Gutsy while still having his workstation running on feisty.
- Port Xen to 2.6.22.
- Synchonrize xen-3.0 up to Xen 3.1
- Re-investigate virt-manager, make it Ubuntu/debian specific if needed.
- Create xen metapackages.
- Work with upstream to get openvz kernel ported to 2.6.22.
- Synchronize openvz* with Debian
- Create openvz metapackages.
why not support vserver? I've been using it for a long time and it works very well. (VáclavŠmilauer)
