OpenShift Virtualization Workshop

June 7, 2023 | Red Hat UK Ltd, Peninsular House, London


OpenShift Virtualization is an add-on to OpenShift Container Platform that allows you to run and manage virtual machine workloads alongside container workloads. An enhanced web console provides a graphical portal to manage these virtualized resources alongside the OpenShift Container Platform cluster containers and infrastructure.

OpenShift Virtualization is tested with OpenShift Container Storage (OCS) and designed to use with OCS features for the best experience. You can use OpenShift Virtualization with the OVN-Kubernetes, OpenShift SDN, or one of the other certified default Container Network Interface (CNI) network providers listed in Certified OpenShift CNI Plugins.

OpenShift Virtualization 4.8 is supported for use on OpenShift Container Platform 4.8 clusters. To use the latest z-stream release of OpenShift Virtualization, you must first upgrade to the latest version of OpenShift Container Platform.


OpenShift Virtualization adds new objects into your OpenShift Container Platform cluster via Kubernetes custom resources to enable virtualization tasks. These tasks include:

  • Creating and managing Linux and Windows virtual machines
  • Connecting to virtual machines through a variety of consoles and CLI tools
  • Importing and cloning existing virtual machines
  • Managing network interface controllers and storage disks attached to virtual machines
  • Live migrating virtual machines between nodes

Additional topics may also be covered relevant to the specific programming language used by the applications being deployed
