Possible to use KVM Virtualization within SME Server 8?

Possible to use KVM Virtualization within SME Server 8?
« on: December 17, 2010, 05:18:48 PM »
I have been using KVM Hypervisor on RHEL/Centos for over a year now with immense success. Since SME Server is now pretty current with UpStream Releases (i.e. Centos 5.5/RHEL5.5) -- is it possible to install KVM bits on top? And do the SME repos contain KVM bits already?

I have been using SME Server 7.X with vMware Server 1.X on top for years and will now have a need to expand the ecosystem. Planning to build a Nehalem (core i7-870) or Thuban (AMD X6) system and consolidate servers onsaid rig whilst perusing SME Server.

So is this possible?

My other avenue would be to just use ESXi.

Also, when will SME Server 8 officially rolls out?

TIA!
