Streamlining the KubeVirt virtual machine creation

KubeVirt is a virtual machine management add-on for Kubernetes that allows you to run and manage VMs alongside container workloads.

KubeVirt VMs are Kubernetes objects defined by a declarative API, providing the vast set of capabilities of both QEMU and libvirt.
This can easily overwhelm users - especially those intending to create VMs in the simplest possible way.

This talk will give insight into the latest development advances aiming to streamline the VM creation process.
By introducing instance types and preferences, KubeVirt gains abstractions for resource sizing, performance and OS support, which allow users to focus on parameters relevant to their applications.
To make them approachable, the command line tools of KubeVirt were extended to enable a user experience on a par with all major hyperscalers.

Attendees of this talk will learn about KubeVirt's new instance types and preferences, how they considerably improve the user experience and how they reduce maintenance effort.
