vOneCloud can leverage all the functionality that OpenNebula delivers, but some of it needs additional configuration steps:

  • Centralized Management of Multiple Zones. Federate different datacenters by joining several vOneCloud instances.
  • Community Virtual Appliance Marketplace. Create your own marketplace or benefit from community contributions with an online catalog of ready-to-run virtual appliances.
  • Broad Commodity and Enterprise Platform Support. Underlying OpenNebula software features an amazingly flexible and plugin oriented architecture that eases the integration with existing datacenter components. Do no reinvent your datacenter, evolve it!
  • Virtual & Physical Infrastructure Control. Manage all aspects of your physical (hypervisors, storage backends, etc) & virtualized (VM lifecycle, VM images, virtual networks, etc) from a centralized web interface (Sunstone).

Although the configuration is tailored for vCenter infrastructures, all the power of OpenNebula is contained in vOneCloud and it can be unleashed!
