by | Jan 18, 2019

OpenNebula Systems has announced the general availability of OpenNebula 5.8 beta. This new version supports computing on the Edge. In fact its full name is OpenNebula 5.8 Edge. It brings processing power of VMs closer to the consumers to reduce latency. Its main features are:

  • LXD support, which enables low resource container orchestration.

  • Automatic NIC selection. It will alleviate the burden of VM/container Template management in edge environments where the remote hosts can be potentially heterogeneous.

  • Distributed Data Centers. OpenNebula now offers the ability to use bare metal providers to build remote clusters in a breeze, without needing to change the workload nature.

  • Scalability improvements. Improvements to the monitoring, pool management and GUI have been implemented in order to deliver a smooth user experience in large scale environments.

OpenNebula Systems encourages testers and developers to try all the new features and send them their feedback for the stable release.
