OpenNebula provides a simple but feature-rich and flexible solution for the comprehensive management of virtualized data centers to enable on-premise enterprise clouds in existing infrastructures.
OpenNebula can be primarily used as a virtualization tool to manage your virtual infrastructure in the data-center or cluster, which is usually referred as Private Cloud. OpenNebula supports Hybrid Cloud to combine local infrastructure with public cloud-based infrastructure, enabling highly scalable hosting environments. OpenNebula also supports Public Clouds by providing Cloud interfaces to expose its functionality for virtual machine, storage and network management.
OpenNebula was first established as a research project back in 2005 by Ignacio M. Llorente and Rubén S. Montero. Since its first public release of software in March 2008, it has evolved through open-source releases and now operates as an open source project.
OpenNebula is the result of many years of research and development in efficient and scalable management of virtual machines on large-scale distributed infrastructures in close collaboration with our user community and the main cloud computing players. Many of its innovative features have been developed to address the requirements of business use cases from leading companies across multiple industries in the context of flagship international projects in cloud computing.
