EGI Community Forum 2014 Aftermath

Last week was the EGI Community Forum 2014 in Helsinki.

The OpenNebula in Science/HPC workshop was full of interesting talks about OpenNebula clouds for HPC. Thanks to all the speakers for sharing their use case and their feedback.

One of the most commented areas where OpenNebula is still a bit short in features is accounting. Currently people need to parse the accounting output to generate their own reports, but this is precisely something we are already working on. You can try the accounting widget right now in release 4.6.1, which we will continue improving for the next 4.8 version.

On Friday we held the tutorial to build an OCCI-compatible OpenNebula cloud. The attendants were happy to have a more technically oriented session, and all of them were able to build their small cloud in their laptops.

You can download the slides from the workshop here and for the tutorial here.
