After receiving several requests from our users to sponsor some particular features, the OpenNebula project is happy to announce the creation of a software development program where organizations will be able to fund the development of new features. When we define the roadmap for a new OpeNebula release we listen to all users, trying to prioritise the features demanded by the organisations supporting the open-source project with a commercial subscription. However we cannot guarantee a time frame for their development. The Fund a Feature Program can be used to implement within a given time frame new functionality or enhancements in the code, new or enhanced drivers, or new integrations with existing management, billing and other OAM&P systems.
The development of new features occur in the public repository of OpenNebula, and the new code undergoes the testing, continuous integration, and QA processes of OpenNebula before its incorporation into the main OpenNebula distribution. The new code and documentation will publicly acknowledge your funding support, and the OpenNebula web site will include your name on the list of featured contributors.
Funding a feature not only gets you the feature you need faster, but allows you to contribute to the open source project from which you derive so much value.
Thanks a lot for your support!
