Hi Luca,

we have couple of features (present and coming) that might be related
to what you need:

1) Preferred hosts and host pinning

This is controlled by the Start Running On list. A VM will start on
one of those hosts of possible, but it will still start somewhere else
if the selected hosts are not capable of running the VM (down, not
enough memory, ...)

You can combine this with disabled migrations (the same dialog) to get
what we call VM pinning. VMs configured like that will only start on
one of the listed hosts and will never migrate.

2) Affinity labels

There is a new feature we introduced in oVirt 4.0 that allows you to
specify a "sub-cluster". It is a stronger version of the Preferred
hosts setting, because it makes sure a labelled VM is only started or
migrated to hosts with the same label.

You can read more about it in my blog post:

3) VM to Host affinity

We are working on an enhancement to the current VM to VM affinity
groups for oVirt 4.1. This update will add host support to the
affinity groups and allow you the same flexibility you currently have
with VM to VM affinity groups (soft/strong positive/negative

Best regards
