This specific spin can actually cover multiple use cases. It can boot 
and run directly from the cd or be installed to a machine. Then add any 
type ofstorage for libvirt and create vm's. It's original form was to 
boot up and grab a configuration from a management server which gave out 
storage and networking configurations as needed and provision templated 
vm's from a web interface. That server framework was been released for 
adoption as RHEV-M becomes open source it will replace it. When 
installed to a machine and run it provides persistent storage for any 
configuration files. The actual image itself stays in the same form as 
it would in the iso, only storage for a volume group and grub 
configuration are wrapped around it.

There may be multiple methods of running this spin but it will still run 
from a cd/iso file just like any other spin.
