Hi Nir,Thanks alot for the quick response and information, actually I also worked a little bit on libvirt and other from ourteam has experiences in qemu, those projects works OK on ARM platform, it is just the capability might be lesswhen comparing to other platforms, for example, myself just added the getHost() capability for ARM64 in libvirt andnow planning to work on compareCPU() API, after that we will have better migration workflow on ARM platform.For resources, actually, yes, I think we can provide those for oVirt community, could you tell me more details aboutwhat kind of resources are more suitable, our current resources are mostly VMs from public cloud, will that be OK?BR,ZhenyuOn Mon, Jul 20, 2020 at 2:07 AM Nir Soffer <email@example.com> wrote:On Sun, Jul 19, 2020 at 5:04 PM Zhenyu Zheng <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:

We have a small team here and we are willing to also help to make this work.
I think this is a great idea, both supporting more hardware, and
enlarging the oVirt
Regarding hardware support we depend mostly on libvirt and qemu, and I
that is the status. Adding relevant lists and people.
I don't know about any effort on oVirt side, but last week I added
arm builds for
ovirt-imageio and it works:
We have many dependendencies, but oVirt itself is mostly python and java, with
tiny bits in C or using ctypes, so it should not be too hard.
I think the first thing is getting some hardware for testing. Do you
have such hardware,
or have some contacts that can help to get hardware contribution for this?
