MADRID, Oct. 3 -- OpenNebula 3.0 features the latest innovations in cloud computing for the deployment of cutting-edge enterprise-ready on-premise IaaS clouds.
The OpenNebula Project is proud to announce the third major release of its widely deployed OpenNebula Toolkit, a fully open-source enterprise-grade cloud computing tool for the complete and comprehensive management of clouds and virtualized data centers. OpenNebula 3.0 delivers availability, reliability, scalability, security and efficiency with a focus on allowing data centers to provide cloud services by leveraging their existing IT assets, instead of building a new system from the ground up, thus protecting existing investments and avoiding vendor lock-in.
Most of the new innovative features have been developed to fulfill the needs of leading IT organizations running production environments. OpenNebula is helping many organizations make the transition toward the next generation of cloud infrastructures by supporting multiple fully-isolated virtual data centers, advanced multi-tenancy with fine-grained access control, and multiple zones potentially hosted in different geographical locations.
This new release also brings important benefits to cloud users and administrators with a greatly improved SunStone GUI that provides easy access to all the new features in 3.0 and a new oZones GUI to manage zones and virtual data centers. Other features included in this release include new authentication methods with usage quotas, a VM template repository, a new monitoring and accounting service, and a new network subsystem with support for Open vSwitch and 802.1Q tagging.
"This new version has matured thanks to our large user base and the expertise gained since we released the first version of OpenNebula more than three years ago," said Ignacio M. Llorente, Director of the OpenNebula Project. "We really appreciate the valuable support, software contributions, and feedback from our active and engaged community."
With more than 5,000 downloads per month, OpenNebula is being used by thousands of organizations to build large-scale production clouds.
"The third major release of OpenNebula brings the latest innovations in cloud computing. There is no cloud manager offering similar levels of flexibility, performance, control, and availability," said Ruben S. Montero, Chief Architect of the OpenNebula open-source project.
OpenNebula is the most advanced and innovative open-source platform for building IaaS clouds, offering unique features for cloud management and providing the integration capabilities that many enterprise IT shops need for internal cloud adoption.
