Recent times have witnessed a growing use of Virtualization and Cluster environment in order to optimally handle and use resources. KVM is a hypervisor, which is used to achieve full virtualization. Many of the cluster environments make use of KVM in order to achieve a cluster of virtual machines. In order to manage this type of cluster and the virtual machines therein, managing systems have been developed. Major problem with existing management systems is that they are developed for native systems, which poses serious problems when need for changing underlying environment arises. Also, these systems need high capacity dedicated systems that serve only as manager. The aim of this system is to address above issues by developing a distributed, web-based manager for KVM based cluster. As this system is a web-based one, it becomes independent of underlying environment. Also, this results in lesser resource consumption. As the system is a distributed system, fault tolerance can be achieved.
