Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA)

Overview: The Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project. The consortium is committed to foster the adoption of free and open-source software virtualization solutions including Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVM), but also software to manage such, e.g. oVirt. The consortium promotes examples of customer successes, encourages interoperability and accelerates the expansion of the ecosystem of third party solutions around KVM. The OVA provides education, best practices and technical advice to help businesses understand and evaluate their virtualization options. The consortium complements the existing open source communities managing the development of the KVM hypervisor and associated management capabilities, which are rapidly driving technology innovations for customers virtualizing both Linux and Windows® applications. *On 21 October 2013, it was announced that the Open Virtualization Alliance will become a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project.
