OKD Virtualization is an add-on to OKD that allows you to run and manage virtual machine workloads alongside container workloads.
OKD Virtualization adds new objects into your OKD cluster by using Kubernetes custom resources to enable virtualization tasks. These tasks include:
Creating and managing Linux and Windows virtual machines
Connecting to virtual machines through a variety of consoles and CLI tools
Importing and cloning existing virtual machines
Managing network interface controllers and storage disks attached to virtual machines
Live migrating virtual machines between nodes
An enhanced web console provides a graphical portal to manage these virtualized resources alongside the OKD cluster containers and infrastructure.
OKD Virtualization is designed and tested to work well with Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation features.
You can use OKD Virtualization with the OVN-Kubernetes, OpenShift SDN, or one of the other certified default Container Network Interface (CNI) network providers listed in Certified OpenShift CNI Plug-ins.
