Virtual Machines for non-Linux OS and KubeVirt

I think the current process for running VMs for OS which don’t work in Linux containers (like for routers, vswitches and other appliances virtualization) over k8s could be shifted to using KubeVirt.

It seems to me this could help us benefit from a more standardized way to build images and integrate with classical k8s tools.

I’ve attended in part the OSSummit presentation by Juan Manuel Parrilla from RedHat that gives a detailed tutorial on how to test KubeVirt: https://talks.godoc.org/github.com/jparrill/kubevirt-presentations/cons/OpenSourceSummit19/kubevirt-101

If anyone is curious to test and see whether this brings potential benefits compared to the current “ad-hoc” way…

Hope this helps,
