Welcome to our monthly newsletter! 👋 Sign up now to get timely updates on new releases, community events, tutorials, workshops, webinars, cool hacks, and much more!


As we say goodbye to this year’s Halloween, it is also time to celebrate all the hard work our team has put together in October for the upcoming major release of 6.6. And after receiving useful feedback over the summer, our engineers have worked really hard to release a new Maintenance Release for our latest LTS version: OpenNebula EE 6.4.2! Among other novelties, this release comes with a new Sunstone’s Virtual Network tab and support for Ubuntu 22.04 and AlmaLinux 9! 🥳 

To all OpenNebulers out there: just a quick report to let you know that we are now prepping up for the next big release, OpenNebula 6.6, which will come with many new features... Keep tuned for incoming communications! Here you have just an example of the new stuff we are working on:
- New backup subsystem
- New Prometheus integration
- New network architecture for OneGate service
- Improvement in PCI devices handling
Over and Out!


After receiving many messages asking us about the integration of OpenNebula and Apache Guacamole for setting up an open source Virtual Desktop Infrastructure solution, we published a post where we explain in-depth this integration. Feel free to send us your feedback!

Last month was also really great with many community collaborations! We were invited to the DevOps Roundtable in Vienna 🇦🇹 where we met with many old and new friends; special thanks to FullStackS for hosting us again! Also, our friends from Departement Omgeving were invited to the Zabbix Summit in Riga 🇱🇻 to present how they use Zabbix to monitor their OpenNebula private cloud infrastructure across several data centers; it was an amazing opportunity to showcase how these two amazing open source technologies works together in a production environment!


One of the most anticipated events for us, without any doubt, is Cloud Expo Europe Madrid 🇪🇸 We had the opportunity to be present at this event with a really nice booth and also to showcase OpenNebula’s new edge computing features as part of a presentation given by David Artuñedo, CEO of OnLife Networks at Telefónica, in which he explained in detail how his team is using OpenNebula to deploy and manage hybrid clouds at the 5G edge 👏

Btw, hope to see you all at the Open Source Experience next week in Paris 🇫🇷 Come to our talk to say hello!
