This review assumes you want to build a private cloud on top of an existing virtualized datacenter composed of multiple hosts (servers) running vSphere and managed by one or several vCenter Server instances that can be distributed across multiple sites. It is understood that you do not want to abandon your investment in VMware by retooling the entire stack, but rather, you want to continue managing your infrastructure with already familiar and powerful VMware tools, such as vSphere and vCenter Server. This report compares the pricing of OpenNebula and VMware cloud management platforms, namely vCloud and vRealize, and highlights OpenNebula’s key differentiators that are asked about most frequently. OpenNebula exceeds the cloud management requirements of most enterprise and service provider users, and in the particular case analyzed, it can result in up to 75% cost savings.
