OpenNebula vs OpenStack: Competitive Pricing Review

This report presents a detailed comparison of OpenNebula with the two main OpenStack enterprise distributions, namely Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack. It compares the pricing of OpenNebula and OpenStack cloud management platforms, 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 33% and 80% cost savings compared with Canonical OpenStack and Red Hat OpenStack respectively. We show how OpenNebula does not only impact the business value in terms of lower capital and operational costs, but also provides increased flexibility and simplicity of use, and multiple features not offered by OpenStack. These include native support for both VMs and containers without requiring additional management layers, automatic provision of remote clusters for simple Multi-site, Hybrid and Edge cloud computing, and broader hypervisor support (from fully virtualized to system containers and serverless deployments).
