A. ConVirt is a tool for provisioning, administering and monitoring virtualized environments. Easy to use yet remarkably deep and sophisticated, ConVirt is a single, complete solution whether you wish to manage a few Virtual Machines (VM's) on a single workstation, or 1000's spread across 100's of servers in a data center.

Q. Who is ConVirt for?

A. Data Center administrators, QA/DevTest lab managers, System administrators, and last but not least, anyone starting out and/or evaluating virtualization.
