I'm looking for virtualization solution to implement the following scenario:
- Creating Virtual Machine (VM) + Installing guest OS (Windows/Linux), applications, DB etc.
- Creating image of VM (including all things installed on it) and possibly compressing this image to reduce storage space consumption (assumed creating of repository contains images of VMs).
- Fast managing of VM images including fast deployment, cloning etc.
So, my question is:
What is virtualization software meeting my requirements (I mean VMWare ESXi, Xen, KVM etc.)? May be it's a bundle of software (solution)?
I tried a VMWare ESXi but it doesn't have any tools to create/manage images.
