Virtual Environment

ITLH Virtual Environment

OVERVIEW

ITLH VE is a complete virtualization management solution for servers. You can virtualize even the most demanding application workloads running on Linux and Windows Servers. It combines the leading Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor and container-based virtualization on one management platform. Thanks to the unique multi-master design there is no need for an additional management server. This saves ressources and also allows high availabilty without single point of failures (no SPOF). With the included web-based management you can easily control all functionality. Full access to all logs from all nodes in a cluster is included, including task logs like running backup/restore processes, livemigration or high availability (HA) triggered activities.

ENTERPRISE-READY

ITLH VE includes all the functionality you need to deploy an enterprise-class virtualization environment in your company‘s datacenter. Multiple authentication sources combined with role based user- and permission management enable full control of your HA virtualization cluster. The RESTful web API enables easy integration for third party management tools like custom hosting environments.With the future-proof open source development model, your full access to the source code as well as maximum extensibility and security are guaranteed.

LIVE MIGRATION

Moving QEMU virtual servers from one physical host to another without any downtime.

STORAGE TYPES

Local storage, ZFS, LVM with ext3/ ext4, and XFS Shared storage such as FC, iSCSI or NFS Distributed storage such as Ceph RBD, Sheepdog, GlusterFS and DRBD9 Unlimited number of storage definitions (cluster- wide)

BACKUP AND RESTORE

Full backups of containers and VMs Live Snapshot Backups Multiple schedules and backup storages GUI integrations, but also via CLI Backup Now” and restore via GUI All jobs from all nodes can be monitored via the GUI tab “Tasks”

ROLE-BASED ADMINISTRATION

User- and permission management for all objects (VM ́s, storages, nodes, etc.) A role is simply a list of privileges. ITLH VE comes with a number of predefined roles which satisfies most needs. The whole set of predefined roles can be seen on the GUI.
