OpenNebula

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 as platform- and API-agnostic. It can use KVM, Xen or VMware hypervisors.

OpenNebula, which now operates as an open source project, began as a research project by Ignacio M. Llorente and Rubén S. Montero in 2005. The first public release of OpenNebula was in March 2008.
