OpenNebula Overview

Key Features

OpenNebula combines virtualization and container technologies with multi-tenancy, automatic provision and elasticity to offer on-demand applications and services.

  • It supports both containers with virtual machines in a common shared environment to get the best of both worlds.
  • It integrates multiple virtualization technologies, from VMware and KVM for fully virtualized clouds to LXC and Firecracker for containerized and serverless deployments.
  • It can easily deploy hybrid and edge environments with infrastructure resources from AWS, Google and Equinix.

Cloud Infrastructure Deployment

Consolidated Infra Cluster

A standard OpenNebula Cloud Architecture consists of the Cloud Management Cluster, with the Front-end node(s), and the Cloud Infrastructure, made of one or several workload Clusters. These can be located at multiple geographical locations, with different configurations and technologies to better meet your needs:

  • Edge Clusters that can be automatically deployed both on premise and on public cloud or edge providers to enable true hybrid environments.
  • Open Cloud Clusters based on certified combinations of open source hypervisors, storage and networking technologies.
  • VMware Clusters that use existing VMware infrastructure.
