New vOneCloud 2.0 Turns VMware Environments into Clouds in 5 Minutes

Cambridge, MA, June 30th, 2016. OpenNebula Systems, the company behind the OpenNebula Project, announced today the immediate availability of the 2.0 stable version of vOneCloud, the virtual appliance for vSphere that transforms an existing VMware vCenter deployment into an automated, self-service private cloud. vOneCloud is commercially supported by OpenNebula Systems.

This new release of the appliance, tailored to ease the provisioning of resources from vSphere based infrastructures, comes packed with exciting new features. vOneCloud 2.0, which is based on OpenNebula 5.0 Wizard, brings support for vCenter storage resources like Datastores and VMDKs thats enable a wealth of new functionality, like for instance VMDK upload, cloning and deleting, VM disk hotplug, Datastore selection for newly launched VMs, and many more. Also, support for resource pools comes in this new major update, as well as the ability to instantiate to persistent. There is also a new Virtual Router resource to allow routing between isolated virtual networks. The new version provides a more flexible vCenter VM naming, with a configurable prefix, new OneFlow templates operations, like the ability to clone existing service templates, dynamic VM reconfiguration, that can be performed while the VM is running or powered off, and sharing of 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 free to download and use, and very simple to install, with minimal configuration required, as well as non-intrusive, requiring no changes to the existing infrastructure management tools in the datacenter. OpenNebula will have a booth presence at VMworld 2016 US in Las Vegas on August 28-31 and VMworld 2016 EU in Barcelona on October 17-20, come visit us to see how you can build in a few minutes a private cloud on your existing VMware environment.
