I've been using ProXmoX for a while as a KVM complete environment, which is based on Debian. Now I've got a server that I need to install KVM but it has to be on CentOS 7, is there any complete package like ProXmoX for CentOS? Thank you


The best solution is oVirt (upstream) or RHV (supported by Red Hat on RHEL).

Check out ovirt.org for details

  • Awesome!! that's what I was looking for. Thank you very much. – Damon Hill Nov 2 '16 at 13:04

You can use this tuto to install KVM on CentOS 7 :

Check your system’s CPU supports Hardware Virtualization:

grep -E '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo

Install required package:

yum install qemu-kvm qemu-img virt-manager libvirt libvirt-python libvirt-client virt-install virt-viewer bridge-utils

Install x-window:

yum install "@X Window System" xorg-x11-xauth xorg-x11-fonts-* xorg-x11-utils -y

Enable and start the libvirtd service:

systemctl enable libvirtd && systemctl start libvirtd
  • Thank you for your answer, but in this case I need to do everything manually. ProXmoX does all the installation (mailserver, webserver, vnc, ssh, ssl, etc.) – Damon Hill Oct 31 '16 at 14:26
