The oVirt project has been leveraging KVM and related technologies for data center virtualization. With the advance in container technologies, we'll look at how to provide a container image for the hypervisor side packages (kvm, libvirt, vdsm, etc.), allowing to leverage the Atomic project - a general-purpose container OS.

An essential part of the project is the Virtual Desktop and Server Manager, a client side agent responsible for the endpoint hypervisor activity. The new architecture is boxing VDSM in a container with an addition of a plugin to the Cockpit framework. In this layout VDSM needs to provide various hypervisor functionalities, as well as network, storage and reporting activities to the oVirt Engine.

We will tell the story of our adventure to solve: Coexisting with other super privileged containers ,Controlling host network, Container deployment , Persistence.
