Libvirt-0.8.2 is out. IBM pHyp driver now supports IVM and storage management

Libvirt-0.8.2 is finally out. New pHyp features are now available :-) I've been working hard for the last couple of weeks to finish all the support for the IVM, IBM Integrated Virtualization Manager. Now the phyp driver is able to manage both HMC/VIOs and IVM virtualized systems. Also, another big feature that is now available is the storage management. The whole stack of storage (pools and volumes) can now be managed with Libvirt.

I couldn't get to this without the help of Eric Blake (from Red Hat), helping reviewing my patches and Brian King (from IBM), helping me understand the whole world of IBM virtualization . Thank you, guys :)

Otubo at FISL 11: DeltaCloud and Libvirt on the way!

Great news from the south, my two lectures were approved for the next version of FISL, International Forum of Free Software (acronym is in pt_BR). Hoooray! \o/

I've submitted two papers for the congress. One lecture is about DeltaCloud: Many Clouds. One API. No Problem. And the other one will be about Libvirt: The virtualization library. I am counting with the help of both projects maintainers in order to get a great work for the projects.

Wish me luck, hope I can make a great presentation for you all.

See you there! :-)
