Hyperbox - Manage your VirtualBox infrastructure!

VirtualBox is a great tool for virtualization, which is open-source and free! The only thing that is truly missing is an infrastructure management tool, allowing you to control VMs across servers through a single interface.

Hyperbox is a free and open-source project which provides many new features on top of VirtualBox. The big ones are :
  • Daemon/Service-based server, perfect on dedicated hosts for your Virtual Machines
  • Fully configurable, using the storage back-end of your choice (plain files, SQLite, MySQL, ...)
  • Authentication against a security back-end (from a simple text file to a LDAP directory)
  • Granular authorization mechanism to only grant the wanted privileges to the users (e.g. Start specific VMs, but do not edit them)
  • Auditing of all performed actions on the system, with history browsing and search
  • Modular architecture, where several hypervisors and versions can be supported
  • GUI clients supporting Roaming profiles or similar for settings, perfect for an enterprise environment
  • CLI clients for die-hard command-line administrators and scripting
  • And much more!

Hyperbox is still in its first beta version, and not all the features are implemented at this time yet. To ensure that we start on a solid base, we decided to make Hyperbox beta open to the public already, so you can try it and give us feedback.
Important note: Hyperbox is currently designed for system administrators who have a strong technical background and are used to VirtualBox. The current interface tries to stay as close as possible to VirtualBox but is still cutting edge and not fully user-friendly.
