OpenNebula and VMware have just announced that OpenNebula is available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. OpenNebula enables cloud orchestration and provisioning features to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. OpenNebula provides cloud provisioning features integrating on-premise vSphere deployments with VMware Cloud on AWS.

The OpenNebula team will be present at VMworld US next week in Las Vengas with a booth (#2008) dedicated to showcase the new features of OpenNebula 5.6 and vOneCloud 3.2. OpenNebula 5.6 has been validated and is supported on VMware Cloud on AWS. Customers can contact the support team through the commercial support portal to know specific configuration and limitations.

The press release is available here.

 

 

OpenNebula Systems has published the schedule for public classes in 2018 for the OpenNebula Introductory Tutorial.

The introductory tutorial is a beginner level course designed to introduce IT professionals to OpenNebula. The course covers the process of installing, configuring and operating enterprise clouds and virtualized data centers using OpenNebula. This course helps anyone who wants to set up a small scale OpenNebula test environment to gain experience working with OpenNebula. Students will be able to learn cloud architecture design, planning and installation, a general understanding of technical and business capabilities of an OpenNebula cloud, and basic configuration and usage of its main components.

The course is available remotely over the internet, given by instructors in an interactive, virtual environment, and featuring exactly the same contents and hands-on labs as an on-site training. The course fee includes one OpenNebula Certification exam registration to be used just after the course.

Connecting users and providers of services and technology

The OpenNebula Project is excited to announce the creation of a new Ecosystem area in the project web site. The OpenNebula provider ecosystem consists of  service and technology companies that can help you design, integrate, deploy and operate the best cloud architecture for your workload, processes and IT infrastructure environment.

Because no two data centers are the same and infrastructure environments are diverse, OpenNebula partners are focused on your success, helping you take full advantage of all the benefits that OpenNebula has to offer and achieve your business objectives.

  • Services Providers offer integration and consulting services around OpenNebula products. They are professional services firms that help customers of all sizes design, architect, build, migrate, and manage their OpenNebula cloud. Services Partners include Consulting Companies, System Integrators, Strategic Consultancies, Agencies, Managed Cloud Service Providers, and Value-Added Resellers. They can be large consulting companies as well as smaller, specialized firms with market or geographic focus.
  • Technology Providers provide software solutions, products or services that complement OpenNebula to build and operate a cloud infrastructure. They include Independent Software Vendors and Platform Infrastructure Providers that have validated their products with OpenNebula.

Services offered by our partners complement the OpenNebula Systems support subscriptions,

You can apply to the OpenNebula Partnership Program  to be included in the provider ecosystem.

OpenNebula Systems has published the schedule for public classes in 2017 at its offices in Madrid, Spain, and Cambridge MA, USA. This year, there are training sessions just after the OpenNebula Conferences in US and EU if you want to make the most of the trip to the conference.

The course about OpenNebula Fundamentals: Cloud Operator and Architect uses a hands-on lab atmosphere to provide IT professionals with the skill-sets they need to install, configure and operate OpenNebula deployments. Additionally the program briefly addresses the integration of OpenNebula with other components in the data center.

We want to let you know that OpenNebula Systems has just announced the availability of vOneCloud version 2.0.

This new release of the appliance, based on a tailored version of OpenNebula 5.0 Wizard to ease the provisioning of resources from vSphere based infrastructures, comes packed with exciting new features. Coming from functionality present in 5.0 we found:

  • Datastore and VMDK image management, as well as import.
  • New Virtual Router Resource, to allow routing between isolated virtual networks.
  • More flexible vCenter VM naming, with a configurable prefix.
  • New resource pool mode, with the ability to select in which resource pool a particular VM is confined.
  • New OneFlow templates operations, like the ability to clone existing service templates.
  • Keep disks on done, to avoid deleting disks when the VM is terminated.
  • Instantiate to persistent, to easily create a rich VM Template catalog.
  • Dynamic VM reconfiguration, that can be performed while the VM is running or powered off.
  • Share resources between logical clusters, like Virtual Networks and Datastores.

The above features and components add to the already present ability to expose a multi-tenant cloud-like provisioning layer through the use of virtual data centers and self-service portal. vOneCloud seamlessly integrates with running vCenter virtualised infrastructures, leveraging advanced features such as vMotion, HA or DRS scheduling provided by the VMware vSphere product family. If you are building a large-scale cloud, are interested in the federation of multiple cloud instances, hybrid deployments, or want to integrate with third party components, customize the product or manage open source hypervisors, we recommend an installation of OpenNebula.

vOneCloud is zero intrusive (although it fully manages the life cycle of VMs), try it out without the need to commit to it. If you don’t like it (as strange at that may be!) you can just remove the appliance.

OpenNebula Systems will run a booth at VMworld 2016 US in Las Vegas on August 28-31 and VMworld 2016 EU in Barcelona on October 17-20 where they will demo the new version.

OpenNebula Systems has announced an extension of its support services aimed at those OpenNebula users in production environments based on KVM that need to support the whole stack. Hence, support can be extended to include the Operating System of the virtualization nodes and the controller (which can be CentOS and/or Ubuntu), the hypervisor (libvirt and KVM), networking technologies as VXLAN/VLAN 802.1Q and Ceph as storage backend.

The supported components are part of the Open Cloud Reference Architecture, created by OpenNebula Systems from the collective information and experiences from hundreds of users and cloud client engagements. This reference documents software products, configurations, and requirements of infrastructure platforms recommended for a smooth OpenNebula installation.

This new support coverage is offered as an Add-on over the traditional OpenNebula support.

We have created a new user survey that will take you only 5 minutes to complete.

As an open-source community, it is very important for us to have information about your deployment. You will have influence over the project and software direction, including OpenNebula 5.0 roadmap, and will help us:

  • Improve the support for most demanded infrastructure platforms and configurations
  • Deprecate those components with a low usage

All of the information you provide is confidential. We will not share organization-specific or personal information. We will only report aggregate, non-personally identifiable data.

Survey will be open until Friday December 11th 2015

Results from previous surveys: 2012 and 2014.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Thanks for completing the survey!
