A Kubernetes sandbox project has begun to find a niche in enterprise IT organizations via OpenShift Virtualization, despite criticisms from analysts. KubeVirt is an extension of the Kubernetes container orchestration platform that Red Hat created and donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, where it’s maintained as a sandbox, or early stage, project. It allows traditional virtual machine workloads to be managed by the Kubernetes control plane alongside Linux containers, including live migration and automated restart functions.
The project has been around since 2017, and part of the Red Hat OpenShift Kubernetes platform in some form since 2018. Red Hat originally called it container-native virtualization, but rereleased the technology for OpenShift version 4 in 2020 as OpenShift Virtualization. OpenShift Virtualization version 2.6 arrived with OpenShift version 4.7 in March, featuring Quickstart templates for creating virtual machines.
