About the Project

Mission is an open-source project developing the industry standard solution for building and managing virtualized enterprise data centers and cloud infrastructures.


IaaS Cloud Computing is the next step in the evolution of the data center. Because no two data centers are the same, we do not think there's a one-size-fits-all in the cloud, and we do not try to provide a turnkey solution that imposes requirements on data center infrastructure. OpenNebula interoperability makes cloud an evolution by leveraging existing IT infrastructure, protecting your investments, and avoiding vendor lock-in. In contrast to other open-source management tools that only provide a special-purpose implementation of popular cloud interfaces on pre-defined environments, OpenNebula aims to provide a open, flexible, extensible, and comprehensive management layer to automate and orchestrate the operation of virtualized data centers by leveraging and integrating existing deployed solutions for networking, storage, virtualization, monitoring or user management.


The project pursues the following objectives in order to lead innovation in enterprise-class cloud data center management:

Develop the most-advanced, highly-scalable and adaptable solution for building and managing virtualized data centers and cloud infrastructures
Assure the stability and quality of the software distribution
Collaborate with the most demanding users of cloud and data center management tools
Spread awareness of the Project
Support the ecosystem of open-source components being created around the Project
Support the community of users and developers contributing to the Project
Collaborate with other open-source projects and communities
Collaborate with the main research projects in cloud computing innovation
Core Values

The core values of the project are:

Openness of the processes and the technology
Excellence for being a project of the highest quality in every aspect of its operations
Cooperation with open-source efforts and research projects to advance cloud computing
Innovation in new technologies and methods to address needs of large-scale cloud deployments
