• LibVirt Web UI

    From Jagossel@VERT/OUTWEST to All on Wed Nov 28 20:22:00 2018
    My wife and I both got laptops now, and I am going to repurpose the desktop that we have into a very low-powered VM server. As far as I know, I only
    plan on running no more than two or three VMs at a time; and I would like
    to be able to create, run, manage, and connect to the VMs completely from other devices (i.e. my phone or laptop).

    The system that I have now is CentOS with Libvirt/QEMU. I have looked into Proxmox, but I got the impression that you have to have a subscription to receive updates. That drove me away from looking further into using
    Proxmox.

    I do know that using Virtualbox has a hypervisor would be the easiest path
    to take with phpVirtualBox; however, phpVirtualBox is not very mobile
    friendly since a lot of functionallity can only be accessed by right-
    clicking on the VM itself, and as far as I can tell, there are no other way
    to access said functionallity.

    So, there is my reasoning with using libvirt/QEMU in CentOS. Would anyone have any recommendation for a Web interface for libvirt? I am seriously giving Kimchi a serious consideration, but it has to be built and a lot of
    the dependencies to build and run it is required. However, I am open to
    other possibilities.

    proxmox is awesome.
    i highly recommend it. the proxmox ve subscription is something additional for businesses to deploy it

    Have you thought about LXC? Linux Containers?

    Just to delpoy Proxmox to other bare-metal machines and not for software updates? It could be that I misunderstood what the subscription was for.

    No, not really. Part of wanting a full VM is to play around with other operating systems. If I were to run services on a Linux machine like
    Minetest or Synchronet BBS, then using a container would make sense. That is assuming that LXC runs the same way as Docker to where it's just sone
    special file system that mimics the full system, allows changes on just that special file system, and destroy it when the instance isn't needed.

    The subscription makes updating easier, but not impossible. It just takes a little more work. If I was setting up a hypervisor at home, I'd definitely go with Proxmox.
