Just wondering if there is any possibility of adding support for

glusterfs, but for performance and simplicity adding support for
creating and adding RBD's to VM's would be nice... from my experience on
ubuntu 12.04 Qemu 1.4.2 is a strong recommendation.
I just don't want to switch to opennebula (although probably the easiest
transition from ovirt) or proxmox, kind of getting hooked on the ovirt,
but it's lack of support for ceph maybe for it's direct competition with
gluster is imposing on its adoption...
just to clear this one up - there is no reason ceph won't get support -
just need someone to write some patches to do so.
Just some other thoughts for the developer's who seem to be few and far
between (or at least according to bugzilla), providing support for
debian/arch/gentoo (although they already have a little community
going), I think would get alot more involvement..
we made great progress to enable other platforms to work (new
development environment, vdsm work for ubuntu, guest agent work for
ubuntu, guests os's now configuration driven, etc).
we'd welcome and help anyone trying to help with making oVirt more
robust on other platforms.
Also getting the website fixed up should be asap, I mean, it is very
hard to navigate, broken links, dead pages, there are tons of pages that
are outdated, some that are up to date but are very difficult to
can you please send a separate email with some broken links you encountered?
navigate too... I mean you can really just copy and paste the RHEV
manual and call it the ovirt manual, and get alot more interest, if you
try and go to the ovirt admin manual now its just a dead page....
There are from what I remember 1800+ bugs and it seems that only a few
1800+ bugs? may i ask what you are counting?
developer's are actively working on them, I think that creating
while few is subjective, i took a look at the stats from 1/1/2013. oVirt
engine is the most active project with >2600 commits from 72 distinct
authors. vdsm is next with > 400 commits from 47 distinct authors for
vdsm (some overlap between authors exist).
better video's, with better audio showing just how simple it is

would greatly enhance support, because lets face it, ovirt makes

glad to hear you like it.
bigger the community the faster the development, please port all the
documentation possible from RH to Ovirt and fix up all the broken and
dead links on the website so people don't think that Ovirt is a dead
project, advertise all the supporter's intel, ibm, netapp whoever... if
you get support in for Ceph, you beat out Citrix Vmware, Microsoft,
Oracle all in one punch, everyone is looking at Ceph, ovirt is the
replacement for microsofts virtual machine manager which requires a ton
of things to get functional and the fact that hyper-v is a piece of
crap, citrix xenserver at this level would cost around $5K per server
with xendesktop and their cloud portal or whatever it's called would be
over 10-20K+, VMware would be around 40-50K depending how many server's
but just the storage domain option I believe is 35K, oracle I think is a
little cheaper at about 3.5K per server, but not so many features... I
mean ovirt has so much to offer, just need to get the word out there!
I also think getting openvswitch implemented would also be a great
addition to both security and functionality.
this is coming in 3.3 via the Neutron (new name of Quantum).
Anyways, great job so far guy's, thank you very much for this software,
Glad to see you like it, please don't hesitate to provide additional
feedback, and we welcome any help, doesn't have to be with code - web
site help is appreciated as well (it is all a wiki).
Again - thank for this email - I really appreciate it.
