Technology

What an exciting month it’s been here at OpenNebula Systems, especially for our corporate users and customers! A big thanks to our Engineering Team for releasing OpenNebula 6.4.4 Enterprise Edition, our latest LTS Maintenance Release. This version comes with new support for CentOS, Amazon Linux, and OpenSUSE marketplace images.

But that’s not all… we just released version 6.6.2 Enterprise Edition a few days ago! This STS Maintenance Release comes with many new features and fixes. Among other novelties, it introduces the ability to pin the virtual CPUs and memory of a VM to a specific host NUMA node… not bad, right?

🐬 For all the Kubernetes enthusiasts in our community, we’ve got exciting news for you! An updated version of the OpenNebula Kubernetes Engine (OneKE) is already available on our Public Marketplace. Built on the solid foundations of Kubernetes 1.27, SUSE Rancher’s RKE2, and Longhorn, you can now easily deploy our CNCF-certified OneKE virtual appliance across your on-premise, hybrid, and edge clouds. Dive right in and let us know your thoughts!
