OVF Open Virtualization Format (OVF)
DMTF’s Open Virtualization Format (OVF) is a packaging standard designed to address the portability and deployment of virtual appliances. OVF enables simplified and error-free deployment of virtual appliances across multiple virtualization platforms.
OVF is a common packaging format for independent software vendors (ISVs) to package and securely distribute virtual appliances, enabling cross-platform portability. By packaging virtual appliances in OVF, ISVs can create a single, pre-packaged appliance that can run on customers’ virtualization platforms of choice.
