We are extremely pleased to announce the immediate availability of ConVirt v1.0. This critical milestone comes after many months of development, bug-fixing and hard-earned validation in data centers, all of which was made possible by the invaluable feedback, encouragement and contributions from the ConVirt Community.
Some of the highlights of this release are:
Extremely easy installation for ConVirt
ConVirt now can be easily setup in your environment using native package managers like yum, apt-get, yast etc. Convirture now hosts the repository having ConVirt packages along with its required dependencies.
A new convirt-tool to automatically configure managed servers
For setting up Managed Servers, a new convirt-tool has been added. It detects the linux distribution, the virtualization platform being used on the managed server and does the required setup.
.deb packages for Ubuntu and Debian
We have added .deb packages for both Ubuntu and Debian.
Convirture has certified ConVirt 1.0 against number of popular platforms. Please visit http://www.convirture.com to find more information.
Support for headless managed servers
ConVirt can manage the servers without requiring GUI Desktop.
New remote file browser
A new file browser facility is added for for people not using or having trouble with gnome-vfs.
