+Libvirt Compute Driver Documentation
+====================================
+
+.. note::
+
+    Libvirt driver in current version of Libcloud is still experimental and
+    doesn't support advanced functionality like creating a node and so on.
+
+`libvirt`_ is an open source toolkit for managing different hypervisors. It
+ca be used to manage Xen, KVM, Vmware ESX, QEMU and many other hypervisors.
+
+.. figure:: /_static/images/provider_logos/libvirt.png
+    :align: center
+    :width: 200
+    :target: http://libvirt.org
+
+For full list of the supported hypervisors, please see the
+`Hypervisor drivers <http://libvirt.org/drivers.html#hypervisor>`_ page.
+
+Requirements
+------------
+
+To be able to use this driver you need to install libvirt client and
+`libvirt-python`_ Python package.
+
+Libvirt client is available in standard package repositories of most popular
+Linux distributions which means you can install it using your distribution's
+package manager.
+
+Example #1 - Ubuntu, Debian, etc. (apt-get):
+
+.. sourcecode:: bash
+
+    sudo apt-get install libvirt-client
+
+Example #2 - Fedora, RHEL, etc. (yum):
+
+.. sourcecode:: bash
+
+    sudo yum install libvirt-client
+
+Python package can be installed using pip:
+
+.. sourcecode:: bash
+
+    pip install libvirt-python
+
+Connecting to a hypervisor
+--------------------------
+
+To instantiate the driver and connect to a hypervisor, you need to pass ``uri``
+argument to the driver constructor.
+
+This argument tells the driver which libvirt driver (qemu, xen, virtualbox,
+etc.) this connection refers to. For a full list of supported URIs, please
+refer to the `Connection URIs <http://libvirt.org/uri.html>` page.
+
+Example 1 - Connecting to QEMU and KVM hypervisor
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+This example shows how to connect to a local QEMU or KVM instance.
+
+.. literalinclude:: /examples/compute/libvirt/connect_qemu_kvm.py
+   :language: python
+
+For more details and information on how to connect to a remote instance, please
+see `Connections to QEMU driver <http://libvirt.org/drvqemu.html#uris>`_ page.
+
+Example 2 - Connecting to Virtualbox hypervisor
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+This example shows how to connect to a local Virtualbox instance.
+
+.. literalinclude:: /examples/compute/libvirt/connect_virtualbox.py
+   :language: python
+
+For more details and information on how to connect to a remote instance, please
+see `VirtualBox hypervisor driver <http://libvirt.org/drvvbox.html>`_ page.
