OpenNebula is an open source
management tool that helps virtualized data centers oversee private clouds, public clouds and hybrid clouds.
OpenNebula combines existing virtualization
technologies with advanced features for multi-tenancy, automated
provisioning and elasticity. A built-in virtual network manager maps virtual
networks to physical networks. OpenNebula is vendor neutral, as well
