We are pleased to announce the UForge 3.3.1 release.
This version includes support for Windows Azure and Flexiant IaaS platforms.
UShareSoft is continuously expanding UForge connectors to different clouds, providing users with high level interoperability and maximum choice in software delivery to cloud.
Following hot on the heels of our recent Citrix Awards we are pleased to say that UShareSoft was rewarded as one on the top european 25 cloud start-ups during the 2012 European Tech Tour in Lausanne, Switzerland. Taking place during the Cloud and Big Data Summit, the Tech Tour contest received more than 250 submissions, and was a unique opportunity for UShareSoft to meet with Europe's top venture capitalists.
Participants were selected based on the value proposition and competitive positioning of their products. UShareSoft's selection is thus a sign of high recognition of UForge as one of the tech leaders in the marke in the fields of cloud image template management and enterprise IT app stores.
"Cloud computing is still in the early stages of adoption and demand will continue to grow," noted Alban Richard, CEO of UShareSoft, in this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan. "Pricing, however, will vary," Richard continued. "Many cloud providers are playing a volume game and will reduce prices for compute, storage and network resources to meet the needs of price-sensitive customers."
This tutorial explains how to use UForge to generate and publish ESXi images to VMware's vSphere product.
As a pre-requiste, you will need to have an account on a UForge platform. If you don't have access to one, you can sign up for free to UShareSoft's UForge Online platform. I am also assuming that you have actually built an appliance or template already. If this is all new to you, then you can follow the video that helps you build your first appliance.
