MADRID, December 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading open-source cloud provider releases an open replacement for VMware vCloud to bring existing VMware environments to the Cloud in a few minutes
OpenNebula Systems, the company behind the OpenNebula Project, announced today the first stable release of vOneCloud, a virtual appliance for vSphere that transforms an existing VMware vCenter deployment into an automated, self-service private cloud in a few minutes. The appliance is based on OpenNebula, every component is fully open-source and has been certified to work in enterprise environments. vOneCloud is commercially supported by OpenNebula Systems.
vOneCloud exposes a multi-tenant, cloud-like provisioning layer, including features like virtual data centers, self-service portal, or hybrid cloud computing to connect in-house vCenter infrastructures with public clouds. Using this appliance, companies that do not want to abandon their investment in VMware and retool the entire stack can keep VMware management tools, procedures and workflows. vOneCloud seamlessly integrates with running vCenter virtualized infrastructures, leveraging advanced features such as vMotion, HA or DRS scheduling provided by the VMware vSphere product family.
An additional advantage of this new product is the strategic path to openness as companies move beyond virtualization toward a private cloud. vOneCloud can leverage existing VMware infrastructure, protecting IT investments, and at the same time gradually integrate other open-source hypervisors, therefore avoiding future vendor lock-in and strengthening the negotiating position of the company.
vOneCloud is free to download and use, and is very simple to install and update, with minimal configuration required, as well as non-intrusive, requiring no changes to the existing infrastructure management tools in the datacenter.
