As far as I remember, oVirt does come with an all in one configuration , but 
looks like it was deprecated at 3.6, So can you try out the self hosted engine?

Subject: [ovirt-users] Educational use case question 


I am teaching IT subjects in TAFE (a kind of post-secondary technical college) 
in Australia. 

We are currently looking for a virtualisation platform that will allow students 
to install and manage VMs via web interface. 

VMware is being proposed but I am trying to get KVM and the RedHat ecosystem in 
the lab as much as possible. 

I have reasonable experience with running virt manager on CentOS 7, but oVirt 
is new. I have it installed and running OK but am not sure how to proceed with 

I basically want to run a single physical server which will be the KVM host, 
the ISO and data store, and the home of oVirt engine ... in other words a 
complete oVirt-managed KVM virtualisation platform running on one physical 
machine (32GB RAM). It will only ever need to run a handful of VMs with little 
or no real data or load. Is this possible/feasible? 

If possible/feasible, where should oVirt engine go ... on the host itself, or 
into a VM guest? 

The web interface is what is making oVirt an attractive option at this stage, 
as students will be working from Windows clients on a corporate network. Do VM 
GUI display well in the browser? 

Thanks for any advice
