Ravada is meant for sysadmins who have some background in GNU/Linux, and want to deploy a VDI project.

Its back-end has been designed and implemented in order to allow future hypervisors to be added to the framework. Currently, it supports KVM and LXC is in the works.

The client only requirements are: a web-browser and a remote viewer supporting the spice protocol.
