About ONEedge

ONEedge is an innovation project launched by OpenNebula in 2019 with support from the European Commission and its highly competitive Horizon 2020 SME Instrument.

The EIC Accelerator funding has provided an opportunity to enhance OpenNebula to meet the needs of the rapidly growing edge computing market with innovative features for multi-cloud computing, offering a vendor-neutral platform for corporate users to incorporate the resources from the public cloud and edge providers.

The main result of the project is Edgify – Edge as a Service, an automated software-defined platform, built on top of the ONEedge software and fully managed by OpenNebula Systems, through which companies are able to easily build their distributed edge environments, using resources from an existing edge, telco and cloud providers.

An automated software-defined platform to build their own private, light, and nimble edge computing environments based on highly-dispersed edge nodes in close proximity to the users, machines, and sources of data.

A Unique Distributed Edge Model

Leverage upcoming ecosystem of cloud and edge providers

An Edge Provider Catalog allows companies building edge clouds to choose the right combination of geographically distributed edge locations to efficiently execute their workloads, meet their enterprise needs, and avoid vendor lock-in.

Easily combine centralized cloud resources with edge resources

A powerful resource provisioning tool allows companies to automatically allocate and configure the physical resources needed to build on-demand their distributed edge clouds.

Backward compatibility with existing VM & container appliances

Edge clusters can be built on VMs for fully virtualized clouds, system containers for containerized clouds, and microVMs for serverless deployments, enabling all types of workloads, from legacy VMs to container applications.

Is ONEedge for you?

Do you need to build on-demand a distributed edge cloud?

Do you need to execute your services with low latency and high availability ?

Do you need to grow your private cloud infrastructure with resources at the edge?

Innovation on the Edge

ONEedge has developed many innovative features that have been incorporated into OpenNebula 5.12, 6.0, 6.2 and 6.4, and are offered on-demand through the new Edgify service.

Centralized Management for All Workloads

Encompass k8s clusters with other virtualized workloads using a single control layer to reduce complexity, consumption and operating costs.

Kubernetes as a Service

Build a multi-tenant self-service environment for the execution of k8s clusters on a shared physical infrastructure.

FireEdge WebUI

Easily provision and manage edge clusters on public and edge clouds using this rich interface.

Edge Cloud Architecture

Run any workload, VMs, and containers, on any resource, bare-metal or virtualized, anywhere, on-premises, or on a public cloud provider.

Clusters as a Service

Deploy edge clusters as a service in just a few minutes using resources from Vultr, AWS, Equinix Metal, Google Cloud, or Digital Ocean.

AWS Firecracker

Full support for Firecracker microVMs, the amazing new virtualization technology developed by AWS for its Fargate and Lambda services.
