Our newsletter contains the highlights of the OpenNebula project and its Community throughout the month.
We rang in the New year, and then we were right back at it, working on finalising some of the last details for the upcoming release of OpenNebula v.5.8 “Edge”. From a technology perspective, a great majority of code contributions this month are tied to this release – one that is putting a spotlight on reducing latency and bringing cloud capabilities to the edge.
We released the beta-version of v.5.8. Hopefully, at least some of you have been able to download it and test it out. You will see:
- Native support for LXD containers
- Distributed Data Center support – using oneProvision to build remote clusters from bare-metal providers
- Automatic NIC selection
- Ability to migrate VDMK to / from QCOW2
- Additional scalability improvements
Keep your eyes peeled for the stable release…it’s coming very soon.
