This is the first time I've seen ovirt, and it looks a great tool and 
would potentially meet my personal needs.

Virtualization managment across a machine is great, however across 
multiple servers from a central point, that is a great step forward.

I'd love to see this sort of tool investigated and pushed forward at 
some level.
