TechDay Sofia, 14 May 2018
The OpenNebula Cloud TechDays are day-long educational and networking events to learn about OpenNebula. Join our technical experts from OpenNebula by OpenNebula Systems for a one-day, hands-on workshop on cloud installation and operation. You’ll get a comprehensive overview of OpenNebula and will be equipped with the skills to take this back to your company and implement right away.
StorPool is high-performance software-defined storage solution. It allows customers to build data storage out of standard servers (software-defined storage). It is intelligent software that enables public and private cloud builders to run storage and applications on the same standard x86 servers and delivers fast, scalable and cost-efficient block storage. StorPool has advanced fully-distributed architecture and is arguably the fastest and most efficient block-storage software for high performance computing, available on the market today.
The TechDay will be held at
Cultural Centre G8
8 Gladstone Str.

Agenda and Speakers
Agenda includes a hands-on cloud installation and operation tutorial, and presentations from OpenNebula community members and users.
10:00-13:00: Hands-on Tutorial
|Diego del Corral, OpenNebula Developer
This hands-on tutorial will give an overview of how OpenNebula is used to build and operate private clouds. The attendees will build, configure and operate their own OpenNebula cloud.
- Configuration and basic usage
- An introduction to cloud computing with OpenNebula
- The architecture of the cloud
- Planning and installing OpenNebula
- Virtualization hosts management
- Basic datastore configuration
- Basic virtual network creation
- VM Template creation & instantiation
This is an interactive course, where the attendees operate on their own labs with a 3-node OpenNebula cloud, which are provided during the course. OpenNebula provides an abstraction layer on top of the infrastructure and technologies deployed in the datacenter. In order for the attendees to get the best understanding possible of OpenNebula as a whole, the labs used during the course make use of the most common open-source technologies that can be used to deploy an OpenNebula cloud. For example, the hypervisor technology used during the course will be KVM, shared file-system for storage, and regular linux bridges and linux firewall for networking. Other technologies supported by OpenNebula will be addressed and discussed as well.
The target audience is devops and system administrators interested in deploying a private cloud solution, or in the integration of OpenNebula with other platform.
- Describe the features and benefits of using virtualization and clouds
- Describe different architectures for a cloud that can be deployed with OpenNebula
- Deployment and basic configuration OpenNebula
- Basic operation of an OpenNebula cloud instance
No prior OpenNebula skills are required, but participants should have working knowledge of virtualization, networking and Unix/Linux systems.
The instructor will rely on a set of PDF documents that will be explained throughout the course. These documents will be made available to the attendees right at the very beginning of the course. Attendees need a laptop to connect to their hands-on labs.
14:00 – 14:20: StorPool & OpenNebula: Transforming the private cloud in 2018.
14:20 – 14:40: A glance at OpenNebula 5.6.
Chief Architect at OpenNebula
This talk will be all about OpenNebula 5.6. and its main changes and new features.
14:40 – 15:00: Success Story: How Inoreader Migrated From Bare-metal Servers to OpenNebula + StorPool
15:00-16:00: Open Space
|This is a session for attendees to gather and discuss passionate questions, burning ideas, features, integrations or any topic of their choice, in an informal and tech-friendly environment, with other passionate and interested people.
There is no preplanned list of topics, only time slots and a space in one of the meeting rooms where interested participants propose topics and pick time slots.
