The news comes a few months after OpenNebula 4.0’s release earlier this year.

Keeping in tradition of naming the new releases on lines of a Nebula, OpenNebula 4.2 has been named ‘ Flame’  after  Flame Nebula,  an emission nebula in the constellation Orion located about 900 to 1,500 light-years away from Earth.

OpenNebula Flame includes the OpenNebula OneFlow component,  the multi-tier application manager.

With  OneFlow, users and administrators can easily  create, publish, share, and manage multi-tier cloud applications and define auto-scaling policies based on service level metrics and time schedule.

There is also a new service flow functionality that converts an infrastructure cloud into a powerful environment for the execution of elastic business applications.

Other improvements of OpenNebula 4.2  include:

  • Improved VMware drivers: Simplified and  more efficient storage system, streamlined networking drivers, reduced run time dependencies, complete  ESXi hosts monitoring  and more.
  • Enhanced support for Xen4: Support for the Xen4 interfaces through the xl command.
  • New Hooks: Users can now program hooks on any transition. Also, the information of the previous state can be passed as a hook argument to customized the action depending on the original VM state.
  • Datastore Monitoring: The capacity of the datastores is now monitored by the drivers. This enables users  and admins to quickly identify the resource usage of the cloud. Admins can also set security threshold in capacity usage.
  • New provisioning tab for Sunstone: Updated sunstone interface, Improved VNC, VM definition update, Self-service view and more.OpenNebula 4.2 Sunstone Interface
