Release Notes: The VMware vSphere/ESX support in openQRM was rewritten and now natively manages VMware ESX(i) hosts and guests via the VMware vSphere/ESX API. A new "install-from-template" workflow now allows you to use openQRM as the Cloud Computing Engine for existing Cobbler, FAI, LinuxCOE, and/or Opsi environments.
Release Notes: This release provides an easy way of automated Cloud deployment via a new visual Infrastructure designer. An improved Highavailability plug-in now integrates with out-of-band management plug-ins to efficiently save the power-consumption of hot-standbys. Support for LXC containers was added as an additional virtualization option.
Release Notes: The usability and security of the storage subsystem has been improved, and the Debian build system has been updated. The Cloud Computing plugin has been enhanced to automatically create virtual machines and to support requesting several resources with a single cloud-request. Support for VMware-Server 2 has been added as an additional virtualization technology.
Release Notes: Support for VMware ESX and Citrix XenServer was added. An additional Puppet plugin now cares about automatic configuration management and a new Cloud plugin provides a private Cloud Computing environment. The high-availability mechanism was improved and the user interface was enhanced for more usability.
Release Notes: Support for KVM virtualization was added, and an image-shelf plugin now provides ready-made and ready-to-deploy server images to get started easily. This version also provides many usability enhancements, shorter GUI sequences (meaning fewer mouse clicks), some security fixes, and other bugfixes.
Release Notes: This is a major rewrite of openQRM. The server was ported from Java to PHP, and the pluggable architecture was redesigned and implemented. The build- and packaging system was reworked to provide better handling of the dependencies, and the installation and initialization procedure is now included in the provided binary packages.
Release Notes: Plugins were added to support hardware-reboot and local-deploy. The list of supported distributions was expanded with the addition of SuSE 10 and Fedora Core 5. Performance of the server was increased. The platform was tested on up to 1300 nodes. A re-install action for plugins is now supported through the qrm-installer. The historic 'mac=' parameter in the pxelinux configuration was removed to save space in the kernel command line. Several bugs were fixed and the package download server for the build was moved to a faster and more robust server.
Release Notes: This release introduces a new evaluation mode in the openQRM-server. Several plug-ins were added to support easier usage of local-nfs, ldap, and mysql. The installer was re-written in a more user-friendly way and the Windows agent was updated. The easy-migration package was renamed to openqrm-core-resource and should be used instead.
