Zoom A demonstration of the Hyper-V drivers for OpenNebula

The OpenNebula project has announced the stable release of the OpenNebula 3.2 drivers for Microsoft's Hyper-V hypervisor technology. This release allows the OpenNebula toolkit to directly connect to Windows Server nodes without the use of a proxy machine and also adds improved support for CD-ROM and SCSI hard drives.

OpenNebula is an open source toolkit for managing deployments of virtual machines for data centres and cloud computing infrastructures. The release of the new plugin is a result of OpenNebula's collaboration with Microsoft to support Hyper-V and follows the release of an integration prototype in October.

The plugin can be downloaded from OpenNebula's Hyper-V page, which also includes more detailed release notes. The drivers are licensed under the Apache licence.
