The new consortium will foster the adoption of open virtualization technologies including Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM).

The Open Virtualization Alliance will provide education, best practices and technical advice to help businesses understand and evaluate virtualization options.

As a core component in the Linux kernel, KVM leaverages hardware virtualization support built into Intel and AMD processors, providing a robust, efficient environment for hosting Linux and Windows virtual machines.

Members of the Open Virtualization Alliance have a common interest in supporting open virtualization, and are involved in the development, distribution, support, use, or other business interest in KVM or offerings which use it.
