The oVirt open-source virtualization management software led by Red Hat saw its 3.4 release last week. The oVirt 3.4 release delivered a self-hosted engine, PowerPC 64 support, CPU hot-plug support, and other capabilities. While oVirt 3.4 just left the building, there's a lengthy list of features being planned for future releases.

The oVirt slides from the session recently at the 2014 Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit were uploaded to the Internet. Aside from going over the oVirt 3.3 and 3.4 release features, there's also a look at what's down the road for this enterprise-oriented open-source virtualization project.

All the oVirt slides from the 2014 LFCS conference in Napa Valley can be found in PDF form but the main news is what's coming ahead.

Featured talked about for the future include an UI over REST API, private network support, a host update manager, live merge snapshot support, keystone authentication, host profiles, libgfapi support, CPU/RAM capping, RAM hot-plugging, potential Ubuntu host support (right now oVirt is mostly limited to Fedora/RHEL/EL systems), new hosted engine support, instance types, and other capabilities.
