Openstack Virtualization

Registered by Chuck Short on 2013-11-01

[GOAL]
Make sure that common hypervisors (KVM/QEMU, Xen(XCP/libvirt-xen/Xenserver), wmvare, LXC) work well with Openstack on Ubuntu.

[RATIONALE]
Users would like to use something other than QEMU/KVM for their openstack deoployments.
