OpenNebula Cloud Toolkit Goes Commercial

The authors of the widely used OpenNebula toolkit have founded a company to provide value-added enterprise-solutions around this leading open source technology for cloud computing. C12G Labs has been created to address the growing demand for commercial support and services around OpenNebula.

“Our experience is that one single cloud solution does not fit all the requirements and constraints from any data center. We provide our partners with technology and services to build their custom cloud solution, product or service”, said Ignacio M. Llorente, co-lead of the OpenNebula open-source project and Chief Executive Advisor of C12G Labs. “We are very excited with this new venture that will contribute to the future sustainability of OpenNebula. This open-source cloud-enabling technology will continue being distributed under Apache license and matured through a vibrant community. C12G has a strong commitment with OpenNebula and will contribute back to the community repository”.

Cloud management solutions, like OpenNebula, are key components in any cloud architecture, being responsible for the secure, efficient and scalable management of the cloud resources. C12G builds custom Cloud solutions by adapting an Enterprise Edition of OpenNebula to meet the performance, integration and configuration requirements of infrastructure, processes or use cases of partners and customers.

“OpenNebula is the result of many years of research and the interaction with some of the major players in the Cloud arena. From the beginning, OpenNebula has been designed to be flexible enough to adapt to any infrastructure and to scale to thousands of virtual machines and cores” said Ruben S. Montero, co-lead of the OpenNebula open-source project and Chief Technology Advisor of C12G Labs. “We are convinced that OpenNebula will be one of the key technologies needed to build next generation Cloud infrastructures”.

The first version of the OpenNebula Enterprise Edition will be available in few days to customers and partners with an active support subscription.
