Having our community spread the word about OpenNebula is the best thing that can happen to an open source project. It was somewhat of a surprise to learn that in the AWS summit in Madrid,folks from Securitas Direct showcased their development cloud built on OpenNebula and Ansible. Pretty cool stuff!

Also, having long time partners like NodeWeavers winning relevant prizes fills us with pride and joy! Kudos from here and thanks a lot for believing in us!
