openQRM 4.9 released - Cloud Zones, native VMware ESX support and more

With Cloud Zones, native VMware vSphere/ESX support and lots of improvements to the base system and plugins, openQRM 4.9 opens up new dimensions in professional datacenter management.

These are the highlights of the new version:

  • Cloud Zones
    Implement Cloud Computing services across multiple datacenter locations, each running their own openQRM infrastructure - seamlessly managed with a new infrastructure layer on top of it all.
  • Rewritten VMware vSphere/ESX support
    openQRM now natively manages VMware ESX(i) hosts and guests, using the latest and greatest features the VMware vSphere/ESX API has to offer.
  • Comprehensive, automatic Linux and Windows installation
    Seamlessly attach existing Cobbler, FAI, LinuxCOE and/or Opsi environments to your openQRM infrastructure and forget about initial provisioning hassle.

For more details please have a look at the Changelog.

The new openQRM 4.9 release is now freely available under GPLv2 license for download at

The project's subversion repository got updated with the 4.9 release code.

Thanks for this release are especially going to the openQRM Enterprise team for sponsoring new features and contributing a lot of development and QA effort. Many thanks go to everybody in the openQRM community, as well, for providing us with useful feedback and bug reports.
