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 66% and 80% cost savings when using 2- or 4-CPU servers respectively. We show how OpenNebula not only benefits the business’ value thanks to its lower capital and operational costs, but also provides increased flexibility with no vendor lock-in and simplicity of use, as well as multiple features not offered by VMware. 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 with microVMs).
