Ganeti is a virtual machine cluster management tool built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen or KVM and other open source software. Ganeti requires pre-installed virtualization software on your servers in order to function. Once installed, the tool assumes management of the virtual instances (Xen DomU). Ganeti controls

  • Disk creation management,
  • Operating system installation for instances (in co-operation with OS-specific install scripts), and
  • Startup, shutdown, and failover between physical systems.

Ganeti is designed to facilitate cluster management of virtual servers and to provide fast and simple recovery after physical failures using commodity hardware.
