KVM – Witsbits

Witsbits enables you to set up your servers with virtualization and deploy virtual machines faster than ever before. It’s a complete virtualization solution with a self-upgrading hypervisor and cloud-based centralized management, reducing time spent on maintenance to a fraction of what other solutions require. The self-configuring hypervisor comes as a Live CD, delivering the fastest time-to-deployment by removing the need for spending time on installation and configuration.

Your bare-metal servers will be ready to host virtual machines within 10 minutes. You will never have to upgrade your servers. You don’t have to install centralized management.


Hardware Requirements


You can use any 64bit x86 PC with 2GB of RAM and a CPU with virtualization extensions (Intel® VT-x or AMD-V™).

Info: Most CPUs has virtualization extensions, for details see Intel‘s and AMD‘s respective lists of virtualization capable processors.

Info: You may successfully use a CPU that lacks virtualization extensions with Witsbits to host Linux VMs. It will work, but with reduced performance. Windows VMs will however not work without enabled virtualization extensions.


For local storage devices you need a hard drive of at least 20GB. Alternatively you may use NFS for completely diskless servers. Or any combination of the two.


The following network ports are required to be open in firewall for outgoing traffic: 443/TCP and 873/TCP.
