Why OpenNebula? Because It Simply Works!
Why would you recommend OpenNebula to a colleague? The main reasons for using OpenNebula have changed little.

“Because it simply works” is the most frequent answer to the question “Why would you recommend OpenNebula to a colleague?” that OpenNebula makes to its users in a short survey that tells them how they are doing. Other frequent answers are “Because it is easy to install, maintain and update” or  “Because it is easy to customize”. “Rich functionality and stability” and “support for VMware” are also frequently mentioned by the survey respondents.
