ABOUT OPENNEBULA

The OpenNebula Project is an open-source project delivering the most feature-rich, customizable and open solution to build enterprise clouds and virtualized data centers. With thousands of deployments worldwide, OpenNebula has a very wide user base that includes leading companies in banking, technology, telecom and hosting, and research and supercomputing centers.

This past weekend Loadays took place in Antwerp, Belgium, followed by CentOS Dojo on Monday. OpenNebula participated in both events, giving a talk on OpenNebula Fundamentals, a 3 hour OpenNebula Tutorial, and a talk on KVM Optimizations using CentOS and OpenNebula.

The whole experience of both events has been wonderful. The audience was involved, engaged, friendly, gave a wonderful amount of feedback, so, big thanks to you all for continously making OpenNebula a better product, for all those great conversations and for all the interest. We are very much looking forward to participate in future editions of Loadays and CentOS Dojo, and to possibly host a CentOS Dojo edition in the future!


Special thanks to the organizers of both events: Kris Buytaert (@KrisBuytaert), Toshaan Bharvani (@toshywoshy), Karanbir Singh (@kbsingh) and the great guys of the venue, the Don Bosco school: Robert Keersse (@RobertKeersse).

Oh, did we mention already that every speaker got a Raspberry Pi?

The OpenNebula project will participate in two events that will take place the 6th-8th April in Antwerp, Belgium.

The first event will be LOAD days (Linux Open Administration Days), taking place the 6th and 7th April. There will be two OpenNebula talks as part of LOAD Days’ really cool program:

The other event will be CentOS Dojo, taking place the 8th April. An event oriented at bringing together people from the CentOS Communities.

  • Cloud environment with CentOS, OpenNebula and KVM. (1h talk)

It would be great to see you there!

Though OpenNebula may seem the obvious choice, believe it or not there are still some that patch together complicated solutions to solve their day-to-day data center virtualization challenges. To bring some light to the darkness, I’ll join FLOSS UK Spring Conference next Wednesday and Thursday (20 – 21 March) to give a talk on OpenNebula.

FLOSS UK (previously UKUUG) is the UK’s oldest open systems user group. I’ve enjoyed the Leeds and Edinburgh conferences over the past two years, and found them a guarantee for interesting talks. This year should be no different, and the conference will take place in Newcastle upon Tyne.

My talk will focus on OpenNebula’s current features as well as some upcoming ones for version 4.0. To avoid the possibility of a potential slide war, my talk will focus on a live demo of our OpenNebula setup in Nuremberg. Live migration of web servers on the fly is the best demonstration of reliable data center virtualization, and will be a good testimony to OpenNebula’s stability. If it doesn’t work, I may still have a warm welcome back in the office – that being said, failing is not an option!

If you still have no plans for next week, come over to Newcastle and join me at the FLOSS UK Spring Conference 2013. I look forward to seeing you there!

This year OpenNebula is actively participating in the world’s leading high-tech event. C12G Labs will have an Exhibition Stand in the Open Source Park (Hall 6, Stand F16, 330), which we would be sharing with Netways, an IT solution provider quite active in enterprise-grade open-source tools.

We invite you to visit us and see the innovations that will come with OpenNebula 4.0. Catch a glimpse of the revamped Sunstone Web interface. A lot of effort is being put in, ensuring a complete facelift of the interface which will enrich the experience of managing and using an OpenNebula cloud. Come and check it out for yourselves!

We will happy to meet up in Hanover and discuss your infrastructure needs. If you are willing to enter the cloud path, we can pave the way for you to ensure a easy and smooth transition from your traditional data center into a cloudy one. Let us know if you want to arrange a meeting, or just drop by the exhibition stand.

See you all at CeBIT 2013!
