I am pleased to announce that the first book on OpenNebula, rumored a few months ago, is finally available!
The book has been published by Packt Publishing and is a practical step-by-step guide for newcomers, including:
- Planning the hardware infrastructure and keeping resources and hardware under monitoring
- Installing OpenNebula, from sources or binary distribution and configuring it on your front-end host
- Installing and configuring KVM, Xen and VMware ESXi on your hosts, building from sources when needed
- Integrating with existing NAS/SAN infrastructure or providing flexible and scalable storage with distributed file-systems (GlusterFS, MooseFS)
- Managing day to day virtual instances via both command-line and Sunstone web interfaces
- Monitoring infrastructure continuously using Ganglia
- Extending your private cloud with resources from Amazon EC2
- Providing Cloud resources to external facilities through EC2 and OCCI interfaces
You can view the sample chapter and prefaces of the book, including the foreword section written by Ignacio M. Llorente and Rubén S. Montero on PacktLib (or you can download the sample chapter in PDF format).
