The software made and tested on enterprise-class environment.
Even this website is running from it!

Multi Node

Manage multiple physical servers from one webinterface and credentials. The connection between nodes are also encrypted!


Native Application & One Click Install

Unlike others you can install this without modifying your base install. Just download and install, by one click.

The story behind it ..

This is a personal project from the author of nPulse.net, Viktor Hlavaji (DaVieS).
nPulse.net is always willing to share knowledge and resources with others, and I have 10+ experience of making industry-class / enterprise-class softwares.

Since 2017 I’ve been focusing my efforts on reducing CO emissions footprint on many different levels on industrial scale IT. My company is trying to be exclusively green. What I need now is mostly FreeBSD and virtualisation technology. To this point it has not been possible for these to come together, until now.

I do need to comply with my customers and managing multiple servers would be difficult. Thats why I use KVM as an alternative with a visibly pleasing webUI. With this project I must assume all conditions are met to fully migrate into FreeBSD and save a lot energy. That also means we are going to operate on lower costs.

To be clear, in the past 10+ years of *NIX experience I can clearly claim that the FreeBSD much more faster than ANY, but more capricious.

Modular

Backend + Helpers + API + Frontend modules are working separately and with different privileges. The Virtual Machines are not affected by the this software when performs update, upgrade or even crash.

Multi-Node

Handling multiple physical servers by with one interface is working out-of-the-box, however please bear in mind, clustering is not possible at the moment.

Security

Privilege System, Login and User Administration and Journaling system doing its best. The webinterface running with (www) user and does not interact with the system itself, not even have database access.

Kinga Framework

The project inherited some advanced functions from our framework already that elevates this project to meet higher requirements. Fault Tolerant, High-Availability, Independent, Self-Test Assesments, Reporting, and so on..

FEATURES

Network Management: BVCP Supports multiple network configurations, such as bridged network, NAT configuration.

Storage Management: Bhyve yet only supports .raw image disks, BVCP can create, attach, resize, detach, delete them as well.

VM Management: BVCP has all features to provide full-featured virtual host administration over webUI.

System Management: BVCP highly integrates into FreeBSD but remains independent, network interfaces (tap, bridge) start from number 300 to 900 to avoid conflicting any existing application, such as VPN.

Native Application: No external libraries needed, just the operating system installed. Everything is included as a package, including the TLS/SSL capable webserver embedded.

Optimized: Every core features are optimized for one task: "manage virtual machines". Nothing more. Therefore the whole software less than 100MB.

Enterprise Ready: Made for production use, planned to manage multiple servers across multiple datacenters regardless the distance between them.

UEFI Support: Basically only supports UEFI installation, with its advantages and limitations. This is important due portability.

START/STOP: Start, Stop, Reset Virtual machines with multiple stop mechanism involved such as (ACPI Request).

Parallel: The whole software is uses asynchronous functions, no delays, no locks -> Instant Action

VNC/Console: noVNC Support integrated, due VNC protocol is unencrypted the software always encapsulates traffic as TLS channel.

We are providing dual (yet one) license options, in sprit of community and honor of FreeBSD the whole software available as free-of-charge for anyone without any limitations.
