What does this all mean? For one, it is open source and ready for you to play with. KVM also turns Linux into a hypervisor, which can allow other guest operating systems to run in its space. It could potentially be an alternative to VMware one day. This flexibiliy is where VARs can make a difference. VARs are in the position not only to help roll out and support the product, but also to optimize it and make it better.
