New vOneCloud 2.2 Creates a Self-Provision Cloud on top of your vCenter
Cambridge, MA, January 24th, 2017. OpenNebula Systems, the company behind the OpenNebula Project, announced today the immediate availability of the 2.2 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 2.2, which is based on OpenNebula 5.2.1 Excession, brings support for clustered datastores (Storage Pods), which can now be imported and used as a target Datastore for VMs (vCenter will then chose the final datastore according with the SDRS defined policies). Individual datastores belonging to Storage Pods can still be imported and managed, and VMDKs uploaded into them. A wealth of improvements are present in Sunstone, with for instance useful dropdowns in import dialogs and better layout of vCenter capabilities. Also, network related capabilities continue to improve (next release will bring major milestones in network and storage), with for instance VM network consumption monitoring and the ability to limit the bandwidth of specific network interfaces of VMs. Drivers
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 2017 US in Las Vegas on August 27-31 and VMworld 2017 EU in Barcelona on September 11-14, come visit us to see how you can build in a few minutes a private cloud on your existing VMware environment.
