Cloud Computing: Press Release

OpenNebula Releases Xen Cloud Platform Integration Prototype

First Result from the Collaboration between Xen and OpenNebula Projects

The OpenNebula project has just announced the release of a development version of the new plug-ins to build clouds based on Xen Cloud Platform. This new prototype, developed by C12G Labs and first result of the collaboration between OpenNebula and Xen announced last week, allows users to build and manage OpenNebula clouds on XCP.

The new components, which are available for download as a new OpenNebula ecosystem project, bring the rich capabilities of XenAPI to OpenNebula. XCP provides a complete cloud platform to OpenNebula, with enhanced security, storage and network virtualization. Meanwhile, OpenNebula provides cloud orchestration to XCP with adaptable, extensible, proven, and interoperable data center virtualization management.

The OpenNebula project provides support for the deployment and tuning of the new drivers through its ecosystem mailing list.
