MADRID, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The fourth generation of OpenNebula is the result of seven years of continuous
innovation in close collaboration with its users

The OpenNebula Project is proud to announce the fourth major release of its
widely deployed OpenNebula cloud management platform, a fully open-source
enterprise-grade solution to build and manage virtualized data centers and
enterprise clouds. OpenNebula 4.0 (codename Eagle) brings valuable
contributions from many of its thousands of users that include leading
research and supercomputing centers like FermiLab, NASA, ESA and SARA; and
industry leaders like Blackberry, China Mobile, Dell, Cisco, Akamai and
Telefonica O2.

OpenNebula is used by many enterprises as an open, flexible alternative to
vCloud on their VMware-based data center. OpenNebula is a drop-in replacement
to the VMware's cloud stack that additionally brings support for multiple
hypervisors and broad integration capabilities to leverage existing IT
investments and keep existing operational processes. As an enterprise-class
product, OpenNebula offers an upgrade path so all existing users can easily
migrate their production and experimental environments to the new version.

OpenNebula 4.0 includes new features in most of its subsystems. It shows for
the first time a completely redesigned Sunstone, with a fresh and modern look.
A whole new set of operations are available for virtual machines like system
and disk snapshotting, capacity re-sizing, programmable VM actions, NIC
hotplugging and IPv6 among others. The OpenNebula backend has been also
improved with the support of new datastores, like Ceph, and new features for
the VMware, KVM and Xen hypervisors. The Project continues with its complete
support to de-facto and open standards, like Amazon and Open Cloud Computing

"OpenNebula 4.0 is the realization of a vision of simplicity, openness,
code-correctness and a sysadmin-centric approach", said Ruben S. Montero,
Chief Architect of OpenNebula. "OpenNebula is the only open-source cloud
management platform that is ready for the enterprise, without having to
install any add-on or enterprise extension, and with direct support from its
developers", said Ignacio M. Llorente, Director of OpenNebula.
