OpenNebula 4.14 is out, and it comes with lots of big and small improvements.

4.12 Features: Show Me The Money!

In 4.12 we have introduced showback features. This toolset generates cost reports that can be integrated with chargeback and billing platforms. Now each VM Template can optionally define a cost, in undefined units. The cost is defined as cost per cpu per hour, and cost per memory MB per hour. There is also a default cost that can be applied to […]

New OpenNebula Community Forum

Good news everyone! Starting today, the brand new community forum is open! After an ongoing problem with the current mailing lists hosting, we decided to replace them with a Discourse forum.

OpenNebula 4.8: The Cloud View Gets OneFlow Services

OpenNebula has had the OneFlow component for quite some time. For 4.8, we have made it even easier to use for end users, integrating it with the intuitive Sunstone Cloud View.
