The Alliance

The Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) is an organization comprised of industry leaders in virtualization, data center, and cloud solutions, focused on increasing awareness and adoption of Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM).

What is KVM

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is the leading open source complete virtualization solution on X86 hardware and it supports all major operating systems including Linux and Windows. KVM enables organizations to be agile by providing robust flexibility and scalability that fit their specific demands.


We work to help strengthen the ecosystem of third-party solutions based on KVM, encourage interoperability, promote best practices, and highlight customer successes.
