About Simplicity, Openness, Reliability and Flexibility in Private Cloud Computing

We feel it’s time to remind our vision of a world that won’t be dominated by a single cloud management platform. We’re moving into a world of open cloud — where each organization can find the right cloud for its unique needs. A single cloud management platform can not be all things to all people, there will be a cloud space with several offerings focused on different environments and/or industries. This is the natural evolution, same happened in other markets like relational databases or the web servers.

Our commitment to the open cloud flows directly out of our mission — to become the simplest cloud enabling platform — and our purpose — to bring simplicity to the private and hybrid enterprise cloud. OpenNebula exists to help companies build simple, cost-effective, reliable, open enterprise clouds on existing IT infrastructure, where:

Simplicity means …

… you do not need an army of administrators to build and maintain your cloud.

Openness means …

… you will run production-ready software that is fully open-source without proprietary extensions that lock you in.

Reliability means …

… your cloud will run for years with little maintain.

Flexibility means …

… you can easily build a cloud to fit into your data center and policies.
