MADRID, October 25, 2010 -- The OpenNebula Project announced today a major new release of its OpenNebula Toolkit, a fully open source cloud computing tool for managing a data center's virtual infrastructure. The toolkit includes features for integration, management, scalability, security and accounting that many enterprise IT shops need for private and hybrid cloud adoption. This newest release also emphasizes standardization, interoperability and portability, providing cloud users and administrators with a choice of several popular cloud interfaces and hypervisors, and a flexible architecture that can accommodate practically any hardware and software combination in a data center.
"This new version has matured thanks to an active and engaged community," said Ignacio M. Llorente, co-lead and Director of the OpenNebula Project. "By being fully open-source and having a flexible and extensible architecture, several users have been able to contribute innovative new features and many others have provided valuable feedback that allowed us to focus on features that were truly of interest to our users."
OpenNebula is downloaded several thousands of times per month from its website, and is widely used across multiple industries, such as Hosting, Telecom, HPC, or eGovernment.
"OpenNebula is the result of many years of research and the interaction with some of the major players in the Cloud arena. From the beginning, OpenNebula has been designed to be flexible enough to adapt to any infrastructure environment and to scale to hundreds of thousands of virtual machines and cores," said Ruben S. Montero, co-lead and Chief Architect of the OpenNebula Project.
