September 2019 OpenNebula Newsletter contains the highlights of the OpenNebula project and its Community throughout the month.


September is coming to a close, and we are in the final stretch of preparation for our long-awaited release of OpenNebula 5.10. We’ve been working hard on a generous set of features and capabilities to be introduced, and the official release is not far away.

This month, we posted a few details about “some nuggets” that can be expected in this upcoming release. Some of these include:

  • CPU Pinning
  • Hugepages
  • Support for NUMA

That is in addition to the already-mentioned upcoming support for NSX-V / NSX-T, amongst several others new features.

At the same time, this month we pulled together one last maintenance release – v.5.8.5 – which is now available for download, with several bug fixes and a handful of minor features additions.


We were very excited to announce that OpenNebula Systems was awarded a grant from the European Innovation Council for work being done with ONEedge. This grant will assist in the development and productization of OpenNebula Systems’ innovative edge solution. You can see further details in the recently published Press Release.

This month we were graciously hosted in both Frankfurt, Germany and Vienna, Austria to hold OpenNebula TechDays for the User Community. As is the motivating purpose of our OpenNebula TechDay program, members from the community were given the opportunity to learn about how organizations are utilizing OpenNebula, what are some of the best practices to be shared, and share feedback about what improvements they would like to see in the future.

Additionally, earlier this month, we shared some details about how to take advantage of running LXD and KVM on the same host.


Next month, on October 21-22, 2019, we are going to be hosting our 8th annual OpenNebula Conference, in Barcelona, Spain.

Like in previous years, we have included a diverse line-up of user and expert presentations, along with Hands-on Training sessions. Yet, we have also included several Workshops and Hacking sessions, with the intention of “opening up the mic” to allow for digging into issues and questions that are pertinent to you, as well as to really hone into real-life implementation best-practices.

Don’t miss out – Register Now! You will have the opportunity to network with active members of the community, and consult directly with the entire OpenNebula Systems Technical Team.

Barcelona is definitely the place to be, as VMworld Europe 2019 is also right around the corner, and OpenNebula Systems will be there, too. The event takes place on November 4-7, in Barcelona, and we will be there at Booth E115, reviewing our latest developments and demoing just how simple it is to implement and manage your private cloud with OpenNebula and vOneCloud.
