HMC support to openstack

an invention by k0da

Currently compute supports only IVM managed pSeries machines. In that case machines are not managed for central place. There shouldn't be a big deal to implement HMC support as IVM commands are pretty much similar to HMC.

libvirt TCK

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt TCK provides a framework for performing testing of the integration between libvirt drivers, the underlying virt hypervisor technology, related operating system services and system configuration. The idea (and name) is motivated by the Java TCK. Currently the libvirt TCK is not fully packaged for SUSE and the test suite itself contains a lot of Redhat-isms. Mike Latimer and Jim Fehlig will work on properly packaging libvirt TCK (it has a LOT of perl dependencies) and patching it to work better with SUSE virtualization hosts and SUSE guest operating systems. It has traditionally focused on the KVM hypervisor, so there might be some progress made to make it work better with Xen too.

Protect disk devices from concurrent use in the libvirt libxl hypervisor driver

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt qemu hypervisor driver has long supported protecting disk devices from concurrent use via libvirt's lock manager interface. Xen used to support the same functionality in the old xend toolstack, but dropped support in the new libxl toolstack. The Xen community decided, rightly so, that this functionality is best provided by a higher-level management tool, e.g. libvirt. This project aims to provide integration between libvirt's lock manager and the libxl hypervisor driver, essentially reintroducing support for disk device protection in the Xen management stack.

Native Xen support for RADOS Block devices

a project by jfehlig

libvirt+Xen should support the qdisk (qemu) rbd backend, providing native access to block devices hosted on Ceph clusters. Adding this support to the libvirt+Xen toolstack will also improve interoperability with SUSE Enterprise Storage.

Improve openvswitch+libvirt+Xen

a project by jfehlig

openvswitch is used by cloud infrastructure (e.g. OpenStack) and software defined networking stacks, often in conjunction with KVM and Xen compute resources. When creating workloads on KVM compute resources, orchestration services can specify the openvswitch interfaceid and port-profile of the workload's virtual interface(s). E.g. orchestration can create workload configuration containing

Add VirtualBox bootloader to openQA

an invention by michalnowak

In openQA we support various backends which are able to 'host' tests. 'svirt' - one of those backends - is so generic that it allows to conned to a virtualization host via SSH a perform shell commands directly. As VirtualBox has decent command line interface (especially VBoxManage command) it shouldn't be that hard to support VirtualBox in openQA's os-autoinst via svirt backend.

Storage War Games

a project by jluis

When we started brain storming a project for hack week, one of the floated ideas was to remake the 1983 film WarGames, and for lack of available space, a local lot with storage units was proposed. Over the course of the following years, while we planned, we realized that this whole idea would not be the most feasible, but it still felt like we were onto something. Eventually, we settled with keeping the name and changing the scope.
