OpenNebula Project Director Discusses High-Profile Deployments

Jul 24, 2012 |

They say they don’t invest in marketing, but OpenNebula has not gone unnoticed. While the open source cloud management platform, based in Spain, has a low-key US profile, their European and Asian presence is strong. In addition to participating in the Helix Nebula project, OpenNebula is also the core component in China Mobile’s Big Cloud infrastructure, which will soon be used to provide services to more than 600 million customers. HPC in the Cloud reached out to OpenNebula Project Director Ignacio M. Llorente to get the details on these and other developments.

Cloud APIs – Is Amazon the de Facto Standard?

Jul 10, 2012 |

The availability of cloud management platforms means that pretty much anyone can create cloud infrastructure. Service providers can use these IaaS-building frameworks to make public clouds and enterprises can use them to construct their very own private clouds. On the proprietary side, the most popular such cloud OS is VMware’s vCloud product – but the real action lately is on the open source side. And as the space heats up, we’re seeing a resurrection of the incendiary API debate.

Cloudnumbers Expedites Cloud-Based Supercomputing

Feb 14, 2012 |

Configuring a cluster on a public cloud infrastructure such as Amazon Web Services potentially requires a lot of work. The various steps involve setting up the machines, dealing with the security keys, installing the applications, negotiating the administration, and more. Most HPC users would prefer to avoid this time-consuming process if possible. That’s where German startup Cloudnumbers comes in.

Dutch HPC Cloud Running at Full Throttle

Oct 19, 2011 |

Last October a special event took place at Amsterdam’s Science Park. After 2 years of hard work, the first user-friendly HPC cloud infrastructure in Europe is working at full throttle. The collaboration between SARA and BiG Grid is behind this epic milestone.

Managing CERN: OpenNebula Team Tames the Cloud

Jan 21, 2011 |

This week, Rubén S. Montero, one of the members of the team behind helping researchers manage the complex infrastructure at the world’s largest particle physics laboratories in the world, shares insights about managing CERN’s infrastructure. At the heart of the IaaS cloud CERN has implemented is OpenNebula, which now serves as the management layer in production following extensive prototyping and testing. Montero describes the project’s evolution and current status as CERN considers offering a public cloud interface.

Clouds Above Calabria: HPC and Cloud Computing at the Cetraro Workshop

Jul 4, 2010 |

The International Advanced Research Workshop on High Performance Computing, Grids and Clouds took place in Cetraro, Itally, and was the location for a great deal of discussion about the role and developments of grids and clouds in HPC. Participant Wolfgang Gentzsch reviews highlights from the event.

On the Intergration of Grid and Cloud

Jun 25, 2010 |

Cloud helps to simplify and optimize grid site operation and grid middleware can operate in a transparent way on top of these virtualized computing resources, bringing about the development of virtual grid infrastructures.
