Is OneView supported over KVM / RHEV (with virtio drivers)?

Hi OneView Team,

In my POC lab we are running the OVAs for OneView and Insight Control server provisioning under
KVM and virtio drivers. (It turns out that the VMs are CentOS 6-based and this was surprisingly painless,
given that the kernel auto detected virtio instead of IDE/e1000.)

Would this be supported by HP if we went to production?
(Frankly from the Web GUI alone I doubt anyone could tell the difference.)

For various reasons we cannot use vSphere or Hyper-V.

Thank you for your question Richard.  Unfrotuatnely, HP OneView does not support KVM at this time.  It also do not support customers changing the VM between hypervisors.

Thanks Chris. Can you register KVM/RHEV support as an RFE with the OneView development team?

It works amazingly well under KVM.

 

Also, it's kinda ironic you left out KVM since the VMs are using a RHEL6-based OS. :-)

Richard,
 
Thank you for your post.  Please know that this forum is not an official mechanism to request features, nor discuss unreleased products.  I would ask that you please reach out to your HP Sales team to discuss roadmaps and provide feedback.  They can then forward your feedback to the product development team to help prioritize this work in the product backlog.
 
Providing official support for a hypervisor requires extensive testing, other than simply using an OS that has some form of hypervisor integration.

Original question was in 2013.  Since then support for KVM is available...

HPE OneView 3.1 release introduced support for Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (RHEL) KVM hypervisor in addition to existing support for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware® ESX®.

Support for KVM is just that the file image is qcow2. So, is not available because it will not run with virtio SCSI. You have to use vmware pvscsi. At least this is what I had to under Proxmox5 to get it going HPE_OneView_5.00.02_KVM_Z7550-96805.tar.gz
