This presentation is about virtualization in GNU/Linux environments, with emphasis on solutions which do not rely on non-transparent privative technologies. After bringing a brief high-level view about virtualization in general, we will demonstrate how to implement a full cycle of creation and management of virtual machines using LibVirt, QEMU e KVM. Covered topics range from preparing the host environment and installing prerequisites, to installing systems and configuring full-blown VMs. Usage of related graphic tools, such as VirtManager and Gnome Boxes, will be covered in this exercise as well.
