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 is the result of close collaborations with leading IT organizations that have used OpenNebula to build large-scale production cloud infrastructures in both industry and academia. 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 2.0 marks the end of a large and laborious release cycle and an important milestone for the project in terms of functionality, maturity and community engagement. Apart from improved scalability and robustness and many exciting new features, the project also opened the project QA & testing procedures and created a new add-on section for high-quality, third-party open-source components.
OpenNebula 2.0 includes a significant amount of changes and new features across many areas, including: Image Repository, MySQL support, improved VMWare support, Scalability Improvements, multi-cluster support, Accounting, Authorization & Authentication Drivers, Quota Management, LDAP Integration, Virtual Networking Improvements and Java Bindings for the OpenNebula Cloud API.
Source code released under Apache license and binary packages for Ubuntu 10.04, CentOS 5.5, Debian 5.0.6 and RHEL 5.5 are available for download.
