Oracle Linux is offering CentOS users/dev/production servers to switch to Oracle Linux

I know Red Hat has announced moving away from RHV and focusing on OpenShift
virtualization. They'll happen in 2022-forward. Are we already to assume oVirt will
follow suite and migrate to OpenShift??
oVirt is an open source project, RHV is Red Hat’s product, they don’t necessarily mean the
Openshift Virtualization already exists, it has upstream too, though not very mature yet.
We will look at collaboration there for sure, like we did before with Openstack
integrations. But that doesn’t mean we migrate oVirt into Openshift tomorrow.
Kubevirt/Kubernetes is a very different thing, it may make sense for some people to
eventually move there, it may make sense for others not to. Well, like with Openstack...
Since announcement of CentOS going EOL and move to CentOS Stream... [Not doing it].
- Will the oVirt team continue to develop past 4.4 release as well as support Oracle
There were emails on that before - we changed our development model to rather continuous
“4.4.z” with faster incremental updates instead of 9+ months large drops. So in that sense
“beyond 4.4” is where we are already. As for OL support see the other thread, I do not see
why it wouldn’t work provided that RHEL will work. Can’t say if we will have any resources
to dedicate to OL specifically.
- Does Oracle really develop to their own ovirt repo and
virtualization manager product
no idea if there’s a fork. As for a product, afaik yes, there’s OLVM.
- What about supporting OpenSuSE or SLES?
not on the roadmap. we had discussions about different distros, also long time ago, but
it’s not feasible, there are too many little differences. If anyone would want to
contribute we don’t mind, but it’s by no means a small feat (we do have some remains here
or there from our failed debian attempt long long time ago)
- oVirt packages on RHEL? [RH announced they will allow RHEL
installed on up to 16-hosts for FREE]
possibly. But dependencies are the key...
I am considering to test moving CentOS 7 development work-loads to
Oracle Linux and use their oVirt repo.
Really like to know if oVirt developers plan to continue to build on what is there moving
forward. Or will the project die? I use oVirt on production work-loads [same as others]
with GREAT success. This is an absolute VMWare replacement.
Great to hear, We are still very much around.
But many of those questions/plans do depend on contributors. We’d be very happy to accept
other contributors who would want to expand/improve oVirt...
