Is Libvirt powerful enough?

March 22nd, 2010 jmguilla

Today I’ve been discussing with my CTO why Libvirt is not mature enough for multi-virtualization environment management and why it has not replaced editors’ management solutions yet…

From an application deployment point of view, the most important thing we need it’s the capability to dynamically modify the virtual machines, or at least, the users’ environment. This way, we are able to bootstrap application environment when the VM boots ( really useful when you use template or clone… ). Furthermore, if the application deployment fails, you need a way to find where did it fail. It is really important to know what is the deployment status from the network point of view ( has the NIC been mounted? Has the VM got an IP address? What is the IP address? ).
