Dear OpenNebula users,

The OpenNebula project is proud to announce the availability of the
beta release of OpenNebula 3.4 (Wild Duck). The software brings
countless valuable contributions by many members of our community, and
specially from Research in Motion, Logica, Terradue 2.0, CloudWeavers,
Clemson University, and Vilnius University.

This release is focused on extending the storage capabilities of OpenNebula:

  * support for multiple datastores, providing extreme flexibility in
planning the storage backend and important performance benefits:
      * balancing I/O operations between storage servers
      * defining different SLA and QoS policies for different VM types or users
      * easily scaling the cloud storage.
  * improvements in the core with the support of logic resource pools
  * improvements in the EC2 API with the support of elastic IPs
  * revamping of the Sunstone and Self-service portals with new cool features
  * EC2 hybrid cloud driver: now supports EC2 features like tags,
security groups or VPCs.

With this beta release, Wild Duck enters feature freeze and we’ll
concentrate on fixing bugs and smoothing some rough edges. This
release is aimed at testers and developers to try the new features or
to migrate existing drivers (specially TM drivers) to be compatible
with the new version.

As usual, OpenNebula releases are named after a Nebula. The Wild Duck
Cluster (also known as Messier 11, or NGC 6705) is an open cluster in
the constellation Scutum. The Wild Duck was ok, we've just put some
effort on taming its wilderness ;)

We are looking forward for your feedback, crucial in order to improve
OpenNebula and tailor it for its users needs.


The OpenNebula Team
