Frequently Asked Questions

What is Runhyve?

Runhyve is a virtual machines and virtual networks manager for FreeBSD+bhyve.

How does it work?

Runhyve consists of two parts: hypervisor and web application - panel. To build hypervisor we chose software like FreeBSD, ZFS, vm-bhyve, nginx. Panel is powered by Elixir and Phoenix.

We created set of wrapper scripts for vm-bhyve and exposed them as HTTP endpoints. Panel calls these endpoints to manage resources on hypervisor.

What can I do with Runhyve?

While runhyve is still in early stage of development you can already use it for basic virtual machines and networks management.

How much does it cost?

It's free! All of our code is released under BSD 2-clause "Simplified" License. Check out our project in GitLab:
