The Enterprise Edition of OpenNebula is a tested, hardened, and production-ready version that incorporates additional bug fixes and software patches with minor enhancements developed by OpenNebula Systems. While we have made all of our products open source under the Apache 2 license, the packages of the Enterprise Edition and the Enterprise Tools are distributed under commercial license terms to customers with an active OpenNebula Subscription.

⭐ Exclusively for the Enterprise Edition, a brand-new WHMCS module has been added that allows the creation and management of OpenNebula users and groups with quotas. Please check your private repository at the Customer Portal

🐧 With CentOS 8 Linux having reached its EOL date, OpenNebula 6.2.1 introduces the following adaptations:

  • CentOS 8 packages are no longer built. CentOS 7 will be supported in OpenNebula 6.2.x.
  • There is a new repository for AlmaLinux 8. Any other distribution compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (e.g. Oracle Linux or Rocky Linux) should be able to use this repository.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and 8 are fully supported. Specific repositories has been created for these two distributions.

🚀 Other new features that have been backported to 6.2.1 are:

  • Add support to filter providers by provision type.

  • Add encrypted attributes to User template.

  • Add encryption to guacamole SSH private key and passphrase.

  • LXD Marketplace App VMTemplate has more customization.

  • Add new hosts to existing OpenNebula Edge Clusters.

  • Simple method to add/remove public IPs from OpenNebula Edge Clusters.

👾 6.2.1 also fixes several issues reported since 6.2 release.
