OpenNebula delivers the most feature-rich, customizable and open solution to build enterprise clouds and virtualized data centers. This cloud management platform is widely used by many research and supercomputing centers like NASA, ESA, Fermilab or SARA to build high performance computing (HPC) and science clouds for hosting virtualized computing and data processing environments, and for providing users with new innovative “HPC as a service” resource provisioning models. These HPC optimized clouds provide access to flexible and elastic scientific and technical computing, to solve complex problems and drive innovation in science, engineering, manufacturing and analytics.



The course covers the process of building a private cloud using OpenNebula with a special focus on configuring and operating the cloud instances for the execution of virtualized computing services.



The target audience are developers and system administrators interested in deploying a private cloud solution, or in the integration of OpenNebula with other platforms.


Skills Gained



No prior OpenNebula skills are required. It is recommended that participants have basic knowledge of virtualization and working knowledge of networking and Unix/Linux systems.



The course includes hands-on exercises to be performed using attendees' wifi-enabled laptops with VirtualBox installed. The attendees will build, configure and operate their own OpenNebula cloud.
