*oVirt Project Stats on 3/21/2014
March was a relatively busy month for the oVirt crew, what with getting oVirt 3.4 ready and all. We were happy to see a lot of new features in oVirt 3.4, with some contributed by developers outside Red Hat, including PPC64 support from IBM for both the oVirt engine and VDSM.
There is a perception out there that oVirt is a Red Hat-only project, but in reality there are many contributors and participants from the community who have contibuted code to oVirt: Intel, Dell, NetApp, and SUSE.
Admittedly, there is a ways to go. Community diversity is a priority for oVirt, because it's not just enough that users experience this powerful datacenter management platform. We want as many people as possible involved to help make oVirt a better platform that will serve their needs and the broader user community.
