OpenNebula is fully integrated with its new Marketplace to quickly distribute and deploy virtual appliances ready-to-run on OpenNebula clouds

The OpenNebula Project is proud to announce the twelfth stable release of its fully open-source, widely used cloud platform for managing a data center's virtual infrastructure. OpenNebula 3.6 comes with several new capabilities that makes it a unique software for the management of private clouds based on KVM, Xen and VMware, including hotplugging, new quota and accounting tools, advanced functionality for virtual machine re-scheduling and disk cloning, and new extensions for Sunstone. As an enterprise-class product, OpenNebula offers an update path so all existing users can easily migrate their production and experimental environments to the new version. OpenNebula undergoes a thorough testing process, which has been improved and extended in version 3.6.
