NETWAYS GmbH has just announced its partnership with C12G Labs to provide services, consulting, and private- and hybrid-cloud-services based on OpenNebula. NETWAYS has been an active promoter of OpenNebula and a collaborator of C12G Labs since 2011 when they organized the first OpenNebula Workshop at OSDC 2011 in Nuremberg. NETWAYS and C12G shared an Exhibition Stand in the Open Source Park at CeBIT 2013. NETWAYS has been supporting companies to manage complex, multifaceted IT infrastructures for more than 15 years. Specializing in enterprise grade open source tools, they ensure the smooth operation of networks, servers and applications. NETWAYS has chosen OpenNebula for its implementation of standards, efficiency, availability, and scalability. NETWAYS has been successfully using OpenNebula in various production environments for several years. ... (more)

The Foundation of Cloud Computing Infrastructures: Virtualization

Ignacio Martín Llorente's Blog One of the relevant contributions of cloud computing is the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model. There are a number of research challenges in cloud infrastructures that, in my opinion, will need to be addressed in 2009. The open research issues are mainly related to new virtualization technologies to enable efficient, dynamic and scalable Cloud operation and interoperation. Cloud computing enables the deployment of an entire IT infrastructure without the associated capital costs, paying only for the used capacity. The new “Infrastructure as a Ser... (more)

Building Your Open Source Private Cloud

Ruben S. Montero has published a series of posts in the DSA-research blog on the benefits of virtualizing a distributed infrastructure with the OpenNebula Virtual Infrastructure Engine: In "The Private Clouds", Ruben discusses the motivations for building a private cloud using open-source technology. In "When 8 are 26 (or even more)", he shows a real case of server consolidation using OpenNebula to orchestrate a distributed infrastructure running Xen and KVM nodes In "Elastic Management of Computing Clusters", he describes how to deploy a computing cluster on a virtualized distri...

High Performance and Grid Computing in the Cloud

The HPCcloud discussion group has been created in order to address the growing interest in High Performance Computing and Grid Computing in the Cloud. The purpose of this group is to present experiences and scenarios by individuals, organizations and projects to illustrate how Cloud computing can enhance the different types of distributed and high performance computing infrastructures in science and engineering. The group covers the following aspects about innovative potential, benefits and challenges of new Cloud technologies and services in High Performance Computing (HPC) and ... (more)

Europe’s Largest Grid Project Moves Closer to Cloud-style Computing

The integration of two clans of computation, ‘grid’ and ‘cloud’ computing, is moving closer through collaboration between the projects Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE) and  Resources and Services Virtualisation without Barriers (RESERVOIR). The two teams will work together to explore how the institutes providing computing resources to EGEE could benefit from adopting a ‘private cloud’ model to provide resources. Private clouds allow organisations to easily manage their own hardware resources in-house. Using virtualization technology they can alter the provided computing to su... (more)
