New OpenNebula 4.8 Bridging Private and Public Clouds

OpenNebula enables building simple, powerful, robust and cost-efficient cloud infrastructures across data centers, administrative domains and public cloud providers.

Madrid, August 13, 2014. Code-named “Lemon Slice”, the twenty-fourth release of OpenNebula is available today with the simplest provisioning model in the cloud market. With “Lemon Slide” it is now even easier to build and provision enterprise applications and manage virtual data centers. More improvements are also featured in many OpenNebula components like revamped network subsystem with IP reservation, enhanced quota management, or better Ceph drivers.

An important highlight in this release is the vast improvement in the hybrid model. “Lemon Slice” adds the integration with IBM SoftLayer and Microsoft Azure to build hybrid clouds, widening the range of possibilities to offload applications in case of fluctuating or peak demands.

“OpenNebula 4.8 is helping us fulfill one of the most important needs of our users: A simple and unified deployment cycle in all of our environments, including a transparent hybrid cloud integration with the main public cloud providers. I would like to thank C12G for their Fund a Feature program” said Daniel Concepcion, IT Managing Director at Produban.

“By offering support for Microsoft Azure in OpenNebula 4.8, we’re further simplifying the developer experience across Microsoft’s private, public and hosted cloud platforms,” said Gianugo Rabellino, Senior Director of Open Source Communities at Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. “The Azure drivers in OpenNebula are certified to ensure compatibility, providing developers with a solution that will work now, and in the future.”
