Containers and VMS in the Same Environment
What is Harvester?
Harvester is a modern Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution built for
bare metal servers using enterprise-grade open source technologies including Kubernetes, Kubevirt and
Longhorn. Designed for users looking for a cloud-native HCI solution, Harvester is a flexible and
affordable offering capable of putting VM workloads on the edge, close to your IoT, and integrated into
your cloud infrastructure.
Sits on the shoulders of cloud native giants
Harvester uses some of the most proven and mature open source software (OSS) components to build virtualization instead of proprietary kernels that are kept hidden from view.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
As 100% open source, Harvester is free from the costly license fees of other HCI solutions. Plus, with its foundation based on existing technology such as Linux & kernel- based virtual machines.
Integrate and prepare for the future
Built with cloud native components at its core, Harvester is future-proof as the infrastructure industry shifts toward containers, edge and multi-cloud software engineering.
