Technology

Last month we have been working on solving all the reported issues and “voilá!” we brought three hotfix releases for you.

OpenNebula 5.4.10 brought vOneCloud 3.0.6, which includes all the bug fixes and functionalities. Check this post for helpful links and further information. Find all the improvements and changelog on the Release Notes in our documentation site.

I know you are all anxious about the next major release OpenNebula 5.6, so again this month I will personally leak some of the new features coming, don’t tell anyone ;)

Cloud view changes, for the better of course. End-users will be able to see and control their quotas in real time. Surely your users will love to have all this information and keep a real time control of their resources.

As mentioned in past newsletters, the new amazing dashboard is faster and nicer, and this could only be possible with the integration of the latest Font Awesome libraries. We know many of the designers will love to play around with this new update.

Last one, KVM and vCenter will be more united than ever! In the new OpenNebula you will be able to control your hypervisors under the same view.

Stay tuned, probably for next month you will be able to read all about OpenNebula 5.6

Again our active partners from CSUC have made an interesting report on the OpenNebula provider for terraform developed by Runtastic team. Not only this, they have also a great tutorial explaining how to deploy kubernetes cluster on OpenNebula, in a fully automated way with Terraform and Ansible.

Even more! They have another tutorial about how to deploy Docker machines in OpenNebula using the docker-machine driver. We would like to propose a big toast to this amazing work, cheers!

 

Impressive achievement coming from Carlo Daffara, one of the most respected members of OpenNebula’s community. Via twitter he has proved to have a soft-realtime scheduling engine, which will guarantee a percentage of CPU to a KVM over some range of time. As he states on the tweet:

“Will make quite an interesting option for industrial control systems”

To finish this section, we would like to encourage all the users of OpenNebula to send us their feedback. Use our github and forum for opening issues or asking for new features, this helps us to improve OpenNebula but more important, an active community, helps all the members that are part of it.
