OpenNebula Systems Announces vOneCloud 1.2 to Easily Turn vSphere Infrastructures into Private Clouds

New version of the virtual appliance with essential features to import existing virtual machines and manage networking.

Madrid, February 18, 2015. OpenNebula Systems, the company behind the OpenNebula Project, announced today the immediate availability of the 1.2 version of vOneCloud, a virtual appliance for vSphere that transforms an existing VMware vCenter deployment into an automated, self-service private cloud in a few minutes. The appliance is based on the OpenNebula cloud management platform, every component is fully open-source and has been certified to work in enterprise environments. vOneCloud is commercially supported by OpenNebula Systems.

vOneCloud 1.2 introduces a number of outstanding features to ease the renewal of vCenter based virtual infrastructures into fully featured private clouds. Among these features, it is worth highlighting the automatic import of virtual machines running in a vCenter instance into vOneCloud, with zero downtime. After a virtual machine is imported, all the life cycle operations can be managed through Sunstone, the vOnecloud Web UI. Moreover, support for networks and distributed vswitches, including the ability to dynamically add and remove network interfaces from running machines is also present in the latest release of the appliance.

The new release also brings new components like the Control Panel, a web interface that eases the configuration of vOneCloud services and enables one click smooth upgrades to newer versions, and the Control Console, a text based wizard to configure the bootstrapping and basic aspects of the appliance.

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 datacenters, self-service portal, or hybrid cloud computing to connect in-house vCenter infrastructures with public clouds. vOneCloud seamlessly integrates with running vCenter virtualized infrastructures, leveraging advanced features such as vMotion, HA or DRS scheduling provided by the VMware vSphere product family.

vOneCloud is free to download and use, and is 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.
