This session proposes customers who have RHEV-M/oVirt Management solutions in their data centers to make use of RHEV-M/oVirt Cluster as an elastic compute pool in OpenStack.
The proposal is to have a nova compute proxy connects to a RHEV-M/oVirt through oVirt Rest APIs and expose configured clusters as a compute hosts.
• To allow a single RHEV-M/oVirt driver to model multiple Clusters in RHEV-M/oVirt as multiple nova-compute nodes. • To allow the RHEV-M/oVirt driver to be configured to represent a set of clusters as compute nodes. • To dynamically create / update / delete nova-compute nodes based on changes in RHEV-M/oVirt Clusters.
With this driver, there is no change expected in the scheduler. The RHEV-M templates which are available as glance images can be used to create instances.
