As part of the current roadmap, on April 22, we launched a maintenance release of the Enterprise Edition of our platform OpenNebula 6.8.3. This release solves some issues to improve stability and prepare users for the next version.

It introduces support for Debian 12 and removes support for Debian 10 and some issues were backported to enhance the workflow.

Our team also launched OneSwap, a new user-friendly command-line tool designed to simplify and automate the process of migrating your virtual machines from vCenter Server to OpenNebula Cloud

It connects your vCenter Server and allows you to list the Data Centers, Clusters, and Virtual Machines available. OneSwap streamlines the process further by creating all the necessary resources within OpenNebula, including images, network addresses, and the VM template itself.

Learn more in the blog post and catch a live demo during the webinar (details below).

Brace yourselves! FireEdge Sunstone is approaching at warp speed. OpenNebula 6.10 will be the first release with a fully featured FireEdge Sunstone, and a still present but deprecated Ruby Sunstone. OpenNebula 7.0 will feature only FireEdge Sunstone which then will just be called Sunstone. Sleight of hand and ... no more technical debt. Other exciting things are happening in 6.10: in-place restore from backups, reviewed storage drivers, JSON-based's the limit!

We joined forces with Iguane Solutions, where they showed how they migrated some of their customers from VMware to OpenNebula. The April 25 morning meetup gave us the chance to network and chat with the community, while enjoying Paris in the spring.
