Good news for openQRM.

Matt Rechenburg, the openQRM team lead just wrote in that he founded openQRM Enterprise GmbH, together with some core members of the openQRM Team, openQRM Enterprise is now the new main sponsor and support company behind the openQRM Open Source Data Center Management and Cloud Computing Platform.

Based in Cologne, Germany, the company is providing world-wide professional services and long-term support for openQRM with “first hand” competence.

“openQRM Enterprise consolidates the technical competence of the core
members and developers of the openQRM Project, experienced with every
detail of this Open Source solution, to supply expert knowledge for
custom, sustainable Data Center setups in best-practice. Our focus is to
lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for IT departments using a
proven Open Source framework. ” say the founders of openQRM Enterprise GmbH:

openQRM is one of the most important Open Source Datacenter, Virtualization and Cloud management frameworks, with support to manage different virtualization platforms including VMWare, Xen and KVM, easy migration paths including both P-to-V, V-to-P and also V-to-V migrations.
