Convirture's 3.0.1 version of server virtualization and cloud management tools support more operating systems and public clouds, and also including a free trial of its Enterprise Cloud edition. As reported on The Register, Convirtue is among a legion of virtualization and cloud control freaks that have been coming out of the woodwork in the past several years.


 

"Convirtue debuted a Enterprise Cloud edition back in August. The latter is a superset of the former – and in either case, ConVirt is used to manage operating system guests atop Xen or KVM hypervisors.

"Convirture also distributes an Open Source edition, which provides basic administration of a Xen or KVM hypervisor using a web interface that front-ends a repository, and has an agentless architecture for managing hypervisors and VMs. It allows multiple administrators to share responsibility for a pool of servers and has a templating system for provisioning VM images so they all do things the same way – iIn theory, at least."
