      avocado seems to be promising for virtualisation testing since it contains more than 10k tests for qemu, libvirt, integration of own tests is easy(xen). Even only for "preparation of a host". Guys from virt team are also playing around it.

      During a hackweek I was able to run some qemu tests with default configuration(jeos fedora). I tried to run install tests on SLES12SP1 but got stuck on autoyast. On a other hand qcow2 image can be automatically downloaded from the webserver.
