Space saving techniques in oVirt

The whole idea of virtualization is to utilize resources as heaviliy as possible. oVirt, an open- source virtualization solution, comes with several techniques, that require every VM to actually fight for each byte it needs, thus keeping disk usage as small as possible. oVirt uses different types of thin provisioning, data compression and data deduplication, to improve disk space utilization.
