How To Build Your Virtualized Datacenter Using Open Source, Linux, KVM and Xen, Part 2

This is part two in a two-part series on how to use open source ConVirt to manage virtual machines written by guest contributor Jaydeep Marfatia, executive vice president of engineering and founder of Convirture.

Previously, I gave you an overview of ConVirt Open Source, who’s using it and why. Today, I’ll  give specific guidance on using Convirt Open Source, which offers an open source, agent-less lifecycle management solution that works for both KVM and Xen. In addition, I’ll touch on some of the advanced automation capabilities which are available in ConVirt’s commercial (e.g. paid for) version as well.
