The goal of the organization, as described by the Open Virtualization Alliance, is to increase awareness and understanding of Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), foster the adoption of KVM as an open virtualization alternative to proprietary solutions in the enterprise and to encourage interoperability, promote best practices, and highlight customer success.

Governing members of the Open Virtualization Alliance include HP, IBM, Intel, Red Hat, 6Wind, Abiquo, AccelOps, AMD, Arkeia Software and other companies that are a part of the Linux and virtualization ecosystems.
