OpenNebula brings the most solid, powerful and flexible open-source alternative to proprietary management platforms for building enterprise clouds

The OpenNebula Project is proud to announce the thirteen stable release of its fully open-source, widely-used cloud platform for managing data center's virtual infrastructures. OpenNebula 3.8 (Twin Jet) brings valuable contributions from many industry members of its large user community, including new innovative features developed by China Mobile and Research in Motion for their flagship deployments serving millions of users.

Twin Jet enhances its AWS and OCCI API implementations and the integration with VMware and KVM, which are the most widely used hypervisors in OpenNebula clouds. OpenNebula 3.8 additionally seamlessly integrates with the new virtual router in the OpenNebula marketplace and brings new features in the Sunstone and Self-service portals. An important effort has been made to distribute the software with the same packaging formats as those used by the main Linux distributions.

Montero, Chief Architect of OpenNebula. “This release incorporates innovative features from the flagship cloud deployments of many industry and research leaders that contribute to OpenNebula”, said Ignacio M. Llorente, Director of OpenNebula.
