About NodeWeaver

NodeWeaver is a new kind of hyperconverged appliance-bringing together storage, networking and virtualization, completely self-managing and designed to be simple to operate and exceptionally reliable. We have chosen from the start to take advantage of the OpenNebula orchestrator as our main component, a choice driven by its simplicity, reliability and its open design and development process. Our choice has been demonstrated, over and over, an excellent one: OpenNebula simplicity has been extremely appreciated by our customers, and the modularity of its architecture substantially reduced the complexity of adapting and extending it. In three years of experimentation, and several mission critical deployments, OpenNebula has exceeded all our expectations.

StorPool to Sponsor OpenNebulaConf 2016

OpenNebula Conf 2016 is getting closer and we would like to share with you the first Platinum Sponsor,  StorPool Storage. You can meet them in the booths area during the coffee and lunch breaks. If your company/project is interested in sponsoring OpenNebulaConf 2016 there are still slots available.

StorPool is intelligent storage software that runs on standard servers and builds scalable, high-performance storage system out of those servers. It focuses on the block-level storage and excels at it. OpenNebula is the preferred cloud management system for StorPool. It is simple, yet powerful and works very well.  StorPool is already integrated with OpenNebula. The integration is performed as a new datastore driver in OpenNebula. With StorPool, OpenNebula clouds get exceptional storage bandwidth, IOPS and low latency. This allows provisioning more VMs per host which increases utilization and ROI. Combining both products also allows for seamless scalability in capacity and performance as well as increased reliability.

At the event StorPool will demonstrate the joint solution, answer any questions and will help customers to improve the design of their cloud.  If you want to participate in OpenNebula Conf and meet StorPool and other OpenNebula users, remember that you are still in time for getting a good price deal for tickets.

About StorPool Storage

StorPool is block-level storage software. It has advanced fully-distributed architecture and is arguably the fastest and most efficient block-storage software on the market today. StorPool is incredibly flexible and can be deployed in both converged setups (on compute nodes, alongside VMs and applications) or on separate storage nodes.

OpenNebulaConf 2015 wouldn’t have been possible without the strong support of its sponsors, including Platinum Sponsors PTisp and StorPool; Gold Sponsors ungleich, Xen Server and NodeWeaver; and Silver Sponsors Runtastic and No Limit Network, that made it possible for our community to gather, learn and build the future of open-source cloud.

Last Opportunity to Contribute to OpenNebulaConf: Lightning Talks Still Available!

As you may know, the lineup and agenda for the second OpenNebula Conference (due this 20-22 October in Barcelona) are already closed. These high quality contents ensure that the conference is the perfect place to learn about Cloud Computing, and to understand how industry leaders of different sectors are using OpenNebula in their datacenters.

There is however still a chance to contribute to the conference. The lightning talks are 5 minute plenary presentations focusing on one key point. This can be a new project, product, feature, integration, experience, use case, collaboration invitation, quick tip, or demonstration. This session is an opportunity for ideas to get the attention they deserve. Remember the rules:

  • Five minutes and only five minutes
  • Three slides and only three slides
  • Focus on only one key point: use case, experience, new feature, demo…

We have two 30-minute sessions for lightning talks and there are still slots available, so now is the time to send us your proposal!
