- Interoperability in the private cloud by supporting most common hypervisors, such as KVM, VMware or Xen, and many other virtualization stacks through its libvirt plug-in
- Interoperability in the public cloud by exposing most common cloud interfaces, such as VMware vCloud and Amazon EC2; open community specifications, such us the OGF Open Cloud Computing Interface; and open interfaces, such as libcloud and deltacloud
- Interoperability in the hybrid cloud by supporting the combination of local private infrastructure with Amazon EC2 and ElasticHosts, and any major cloud provider, such as Rackspace, GoGrid or Terremark through a RedHat’s deltacloud adaptor
Because two data centers are not the same, building a cloud computing infrastructure requires the integration and orchestration of the underlying existing IT systems, services and processes. OpenNebula enables interoperability and portability, recognizing that our users have data-centers composed of different hardware and software components for security, virtualization, storage, and networking. Its open, architecture, interfaces and components provide the flexibility and extensibility that many enterprise IT shops need for internal cloud adoption. You only have to chose the right design and configuration in your Cloud architecture depending on your existing IT architecture and the execution requirements of your service workload.
Impressive and clear. It needs an ecosystem of consultants able to deliver the production cloud with this tool. It is an engine in need of a body and the wheels, or wings, to move ahead.
For example, can http://www.4basetech.com/ adopt this technology? They installed clouds in 300 customers using other people technology, and CA snapped them for an undisclosed sum ten days ago.
If 3 to 4 companies like 4Base adopt Open Nebula, “Bob’s your uncle”, as Australians say.
Yes, agreed, this is the ecosystem that is being built around C12G and the Enterprise Edition of OpenNebula.
