Release of OpenNebula 3.4 with the Most Powerful Open Cloud Solution for VMware

MADRID, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- OpenNebula 3.4 is the most feature-rich open-source alternative to VMware datacenter and cloud suite, delivering enterprise-class functionality, stability and scalability with broader platform support and integration capabilities for KVM, Xen and VMware hypervisors

OpenNebula is proud to announce the release of a new stable version of its widely-deployed open-source management solution for enterprise data center virtualization. OpenNebula 3.4 delivers the most feature-rich, customizable solution to build enterprise virtualized data centers and private clouds on Xen, KVM and VMware, providing cloud consumers with a choice of interfaces, from open cloud to de-facto standards, like the Amazon API. This new release brings countless valuable contributions from many industry members of its large user community, including Research in Motion, Logica, Terradue 2.0 and CloudWeavers, and from research and academia, especially Clemson and Vilnius Universities.

OpenNebula 3.4 focuses on extending its storage capabilities with the support for multiple datastores to offer flexible, scalable and high performance storage backends. OpenNebula 3.4 also features improvements in other systems, like support for resource pools, elastic IPs in the Amazon API, improved web GUIs, and better support for hybrid clouds with Amazon EC2. 

"While being hypervisor-agnostic, this new update of OpenNebula has functionality comparable to VMware vCenter and vCloud Director," said Ruben S. Montero, Chief Architect of OpenNebula. "This eleventh stable release leverages power of user-driven development by delivering a production-proven product that comprises the most-demanded functionalities for enterprise clouds with a single install," said Ignacio M. Llorente, Director of OpenNebula.

OpenNebula is a very active open source project that started five years ago and has developed a large user base, with more than 5,000 downloads per month and thousands of deployments that include leading research centers like CERN, FermiLab and ESA; supercomputing centers like SARA and NCHC; telecom operators like China Mobile and Telefonica O2; and system integrators like Engineering and KPMG. The project has also established collaborations with IT vendors like Microsoft for innovation and interoperability in cloud computing.

C12G Labs, the company behind the open-source project, delivers a commercial distribution of OpenNebula for organizations looking for a certified, long-term supported cloud platform. OpenNebula and C12G are trademarks of C12G Labs S.L. Other product or company names mentioned may be trademarks of their respective companies.
