A large segment of our user community has found in OpenNebula a flexible and robust open source solution that provides many enticing benefits for existing VMware customers. While VMware provides a highly marketed and respectable suite of IT virtualization and cloud solutions, it is not a perfect fit for everyone. And because OpenNebula offers a streamlined integration with the VMware vCenter server, current VMware customers have a reliable option to take full advantage of their existing VMware infrastructure investment, while freeing themselves from loads of VMware licensing commitments for their cloud management solution.
For organizations that are looking to avoid racking up massive VMware licensing fees, while maintaining an enterprise cloud management platform on top of their VMware infrastructure, with full Enterprise SLA-based support, OpenNebula provides the perfect alternative. And to help you understand how, we have just published the “Building Clouds on VMware: Competitive Pricing Review” report, which walks through the difference between what you get with VMware vCloud and vRealize compared to managing your vCenter infrastructure with OpenNebula under an OpenNebula Subscription. Not only does it offer an escape route from vendor lock-in, but it provides a dependable, flexible, and vastly more economical solution for existing VMware customers. Take a moment and read up on the details, and don’t hesitate to contact us for further information and advice!
