- It comes with all the features of a Cloud Management Platform but without adding extra layers of orchestration, thus reducing the complexity, resource consumption and operational costs
- OpenNebula maintains its publicly available Kubernetes Virtual Appliance for KVM hosts
OpenNebula has announced that it has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). It confirmed confirms its commitment to support the deployment and management of containerized applications and Kubernetes clusters, both on premises and through its support for hybrid and edge cloud computing.
It added, “Thanks to its cutting-edge integration with Firecracker, the new virtualisation technology developed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and widely used as part of its Fargate and Lambda services, OpenNebula has managed to bridge the gap between two technological worlds, leaving behind the traditional dilemma between using containers—lighter but with weaker security—or Virtual Machines—with strong security but high overhead.”
Cloud Management Platform
It said that by combining virtualisation and container technologies with multi-tenancy, automatic provision and elasticity, and due to its native integration with Docker Hub, OpenNebula has become a powerful alternative to deploy and orchestrate containers as secure and fast microVMs. It comes with all the features of a Cloud Management Platform but without adding extra layers of orchestration, thus reducing the complexity, resource consumption and operational costs.
OpenNebula maintains its publicly available Kubernetes Virtual Appliance for KVM hosts and is also in the process of adopting K3s as its default technology for Kubernetes deployments at the edge.
Priyanka Sharma, General Manager of CNCF said, “We are delighted to welcome OpenNebula to CNCF as a new Silver Member, and look forward to their contributions towards enabling better support for Kubernetes deployments at the edge.”
