Hi folks, it seems we definitely hit something interesting based on the number of responses to part 1 of this article.. Talking about the Next Generation Hypervisor, or “Red Hat Virtualization Hypervisor” as it will officially will be known as, has definitely gotten positive attention. We’re going to take another look today, with a deeper focus on “Cockpit”, the hypervisor administrative plugin and web console.
Let’s get started. Continue reading “Next Generation Hypervisor – pt2”
Hi Folks, a few weeks ago I posted an article on Red Hat’s official blog – Viewing the Horizon from the Cockpit. It talks specifically about the Next Generation Hypervisor or “Next Generation Node” from Red Hat, what went into the design, and why we ripped it apart to put it back together again. I’m revisiting the topic again with the purpose of showing you what the fuss is all about.
Would you like to see it? Continue reading “Next Generation Hypervisor – pt1”
Hi folks, we’re tying up our series on building a self-service portal with RHEV and CloudForms today. In part 1, we deployed the CloudForms appliance in RHEV. In part 2, we created a single VM catalog item. In part 3, we created a multi-item catalog bundle. And now in part 4, we’re going to launch both of those creations from the self-service portal, and see what happens from both the RHEV standpoint and the CloudForms admin standpoint.
Let’s get started. Continue reading “Self-Service with CloudForms & RHEV pt4”
Hi folks, when I left off before I had showed you how to create a single catalog item in the self-service portal of CloudForms with RHEV. Now we’re going to expand on that theme by creating a multi-item catalog bundle. This is where things really start getting interesting. Hopefully you start getting ideas in your own heads as to how to change things for your own environments and adapt things for your own needs.
Let’s get started. Continue reading “Self-Service with CloudForms & RHEV pt3”
Hi Folks, if you came out to Red Hat Summit, I hope you had a great time. If you were unable to attend, I’ve pulled together some links to some presentations that you might find interesting. I’ve kept them relevant to this blog – KVM or managing KVM based technologies. Continue reading “What you missed at Red Hat Summit 2016”
Hi folks, we’re following up our previous post on RHEV and CloudForms configuration with getting some actual work done. Specifically, we’re going to build a catalog item for our self-service catalog. In order to keep the posts and demos short, the examples are fairly basic, but don’t let that fool you. You can do some crazy and complicated automation.
