Got back to this yesterday. Running on CentOS7 as a base (best of the default options the hosting provider has/had.) Easy management through the remote virt-manager and ssh.

@Tim_G turned me onto Kimchi as a secondary management interface as well. I've successfully installed wok and kimchi, but haven't opened the port yet, will get that done tonight after grabbing an ssl cert.

Also got the first vm uploaded last night, tomorrow looks to be a big day in my home lab.
