Oracle Cloud Infrastructure doesn’t offer a prepackaged image with KVM preconfigured. However, we want to provide you with the ability to start using KVM within your environments and move virtual machines into the cloud. This white paper details how to use KVM on a bare metal instance. Before we released the multi-VNIC feature, instances were limited to a single network interface. This limit prevented the use of any hypervisor on bare metal instances because guest operating systems could not connect to the subnet within the virtual cloud network (VCN).
