KubeSphere Virtualization

KubeSphere Virtualization (KSV) is a lightweight VM management platform built on top of KubeSphere. KSV supports single-node and multi-node modes for deployment and provides easy-to-use services to meet enterprise-grade requirements of virtualization.


KSV uses a cloud-native architecture that decouples front-end and back-end services. In this architecture, modules are loosely coupled. KSV supports single-node deployment with a minimum specification of 4 CPU cores and 8 GB memory. This service frees you from the dependency of the underlying infrastructure. You can run KSV on x86 or ARM servers that support virtualization.

KSV offers lightweight, flexible, and simplified delivery. Built on top of the cloud-native Kubernetes architecture, KSV can integrate with various external software and hardware to provide enterprise-grade solutions in different scenarios.

  • Resource Pooling

    Resource Pooling

    KSV is a cloud-native virtualization platform self-developed by QingCloud. This service provides excellent compatibility and supports chips and OSs developed by Chinese vendors. KSV improves resource usage and supports the reuse of legacy hardware. You can connect to third-party storage and create VMs in seconds.

  • Edge Computing

    Edge Computing

    KSV provides a lightweight virtualization platform that supports a minimum specification of 4 CPU cores and 8 GB memory. This service supports multi-node deployment and the reuse of legacy hardware such as PCs, industrial PCs, and servers. KSV applies to diverse scenarios and supports mult-node deployment. This way, data can be computed on the nodes that are nearest to your users. This achieves real-time response, data masking, and reduced bandwidth costs.

  • Hybrid Deployment of Containers and VMs

    Hybrid Deployment of Containers and VMs

    On top of Kubernetes, KSV allows you to deploy VMs and pods in hybrid mode. You can deploy KubeSphere and KSV on the same server. This simplifies your infrastructure and improves O&M efficiency.
