Cloud Computing in Ubuntu

The Ubuntu team announced one month ago their plan to offer a set of new software packages related to cloud computing in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope), due to be released in April 2009. One of the target packages, the OpenNebula Virtual Infrastructure Engine, is available for download from the Ubuntu repository. Ruben S. Montero has published a very nice "mini how-to" describing how to set up your own private cloud in only five steps with Ubuntu and OpenNebula. This is the easiest and fastest way to transform a static and rigid physical infrastructure into a flexible, elastic a... (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)
