C12G Labs Announces the Release of OpenNebulaPro 3.6

Enterprise Edition of the Widely Used OpenNebula Cloud Computing Software

C12G Labs has just announced an update release of OpenNebulaPro, the enterprise edition of OpenNebula. OpenNebulaPro integrates the most recent stable version of OpenNebula (3.6) with the bug, performance, and scalability patches developed by the community and by C12G for its customers and partners.

OpenNebula 3.6 (codename Lagoon), released one month ago, featured several enhancements focused on making it a more robust and user friendly cloud manager. The main new feature is the new hotplugging mechanism for disk volumes that supports attaching either volatile volumes or existing images to a running VM. Also, Quota and Accounting tools were re-written from scratch , so now they are included in the OpenNebula core to enhance their integration with the existing AuthZ & AuthN mechanisms and other related tools (e.g. Sunstone). Some new features like VM reschedulinghard reboots, or cloning of disk images were added as well. Apart from the core, Lagoon came with improvements in other systems, especially in Sunstone's interface with the redesign of several tabs as well as in the OpenNebula Zones. There was also an important milestone reached in this release, with OpenNebula 3.6 fully integrated with the new OpenNebula Marketplace. Any user of an OpenNebula cloud can very easily find and deploy virtual appliances through familiar tools like the SunStone GUI or the OpenNebula CLI. The OpenNebula Marketplace is also of the interest of any software developer to quickly distribute a new appliance, making it available to all OpenNebula deployments worldwide.

OpenNebulaPro is used by corporations, research centers and governments looking for a hardened, certified, long-term supported cloud platform. OpenNebulaPro combines the rapid innovation of open-source with the stability and long-term production support of commercial software. Compared to OpenNebula, the expert production and integration support of OpenNebulaPro and its higher stability increase IT productivity, speed time to deployment, and reduce business and technical risks. Compared to other commercial alternatives, OpenNebulaPro is an adaptable and interoperable cloud management solution that delivers enterprise-class functionality, stability and scalability at significantly lower costs.

OpenNebulaPro is provided under open-source license to customers and partners on an annual subscription basis through the OpenNebula.pro Support Portal. The subscription model brings several additional benefits in terms of long term multi-year support, integration and production support with professional SLAs, regular maintenance releases, product influence, and privacy and security guarantee, and all at a competitive cost without high upfront fees. C12G Labs also offers professional services to help at any stage of cloud computing adoption with OpenNebula.

C12G offers a 30-day, no-cost, and no-commitment trial of OpenNebulaPro with the services to assess its suitability and performance in your environment.
