Cloud management software maker Abiquo also plays the open-source game.
Abiquo offers enterprises a complete, hypervisor-agnostic, open-source cloud infrastructure management solution designed to change the way IT organizations operate their virtualized environments, making them more elastic and cost-effective to run. The company recently gave insight into version 1.5 of its abiCloud offering, which supports Microsoft Hyper-V and lets users leverage "drag-and-drop" functionality to convert a running VMware hypervisor to Hyper-V.
Abiquo recently opened its U.S.-based office in Redwood City, Calif. with $5.1 million in new funding the company has brought in. Abiquo operated in stealth mode in Barcelona before launching as a U.S. based company in March.
