Ganeti Virtualization Management: Improving
the Utilization of Your Hardware and Your Time
Ganeti is a cluster virtual server management software tool built on top of
existing virtualization technologies such as Xen or KVM. Ganeti takes care
of disk creation, migration, OS installation, shutdown, startup, and can be
used to preemptively move a virtual machine off a physical machine that is
starting to get sick. It doesn't require a big expensive SAN, complicated
networking, or a lot of money. The project is used around the world by
many organizations and it is sponsored by Google.
