Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"For the entire data center, as a private cloud, I believe that user management, expert management, and the virtual data center is completely magic for the users.""OpenNebula is lightweight, stable, and easy to customize.""The ability to use it almost like a public cloud for an organization is a big asset, as it will create a value proposition and can control costs in a great way."

More OpenNebula Pros »

"The stability of the solution is very good. We haven't had any issues with it.""They are a very mature product.""The optimization of the solution is quite interesting.""The multi-tenancy feature has been very helpful for our clients. It has been working fine and seamlessly for them. Its interface is also very simplified, and it is also an open and easy-to-scale solution."

Cons
"They should add more features like object storage.""They have been saying for the past two and a half years that they would develop a feature to hot-add RAM and CPU, but it does not work.""Most of the competitors are offering some sort of billing software to transform their installation to work as a small-sized public cloud, but those offerings from OpenNebula are still missing."

More OpenNebula Cons »

"The complexity of the solution is a bit high in comparison to VMware.""Because the solution needs to integrate with other products that surround it, there is a lot of configuration required, and this can be quite complex. It's not as easy as it is with, for example, VMware.""The solution is still quite immature.""Our clients had challenges or issues with the updates. Its updates should be better managed. They should provide quicker and more stable updates. Its stability can also be better. We initially faced ease-of-use and compatibility issues while integrating it. We had a lot of compatibility issues with other products. Our clients are concerned about whether it is under IBM or it is still Red Hat. Clients are not very clear about the support, and they're not really happy with it. Currently, they're getting support from Red Hat, but going forward, they're not really clear about what would be the life cycle of the product, which is a concern for them."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"VRA is very expensive but OpenNebula is free.""We use the Community Edition, rather than the Enterprise Edition.""OpenNebuoa has recently come up with a new subscription model that is economical and a lot of new customers are choosing this as it is an easy subscription model."
