The OpenNebula Project has just announced the Beta release of vOneCloud, a CentOS Linux virtual appliance for vSphere that contains all required OpenNebula services optimized to work on existing VMware vCenter deployments. vOneCloud is for companies that want to create a self-service cloud environment on top of their VMware infrastructure without having to abandon their investment in VMware and retool the entire stack. vOneCloud deploys an enterprise-ready OpenNebula cloud just in a few minutes where the infrastructure is managed by already familiar VMware tools, such as vSphere and vCenter Operations Manager, and the provisioning, elasticity and multi-tenancy cloud features are offered by OpenNebula. vOneCloud is the answer to those companies looking for alternatives to VMware vCloud. They usually report that: vCloud is not an easy to use solution vCloud is mostly ... (more)

Open Replacement for VMware vCloud By @OpenNebula | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

OpenNebula Systems, the company behind the OpenNebula Project, announced the first stable release of vOneCloud, a virtual appliance for vSphere that transforms an existing VMware vCenter deployment into an automated, self-service private cloud in a few minutes. The appliance is based on OpenNebula, every component is fully open-source and has been certified to work in enterprise environments. vOneCloud is commercially supported by OpenNebula Systems. vOneCloud exposes a multi-tenant, cloud-like provisioning layer, including features like virtual data centers, self-service portal...

Building Clouds on @VMware vSphere | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Building Clouds on VMware vSphere This case study assumes you want to build a private cloud on top of an existing virtualized datacenter composed of multiple hosts running vSphere and managed by one or several instances of vCenter. It is understood that you do not want to abandon your investment in VMware by retooling the entire stack. You want to continue managing your infrastructure with already familiar and powerful VMware tools, such as vSphere and vCenter Operations Manager. Your goal is to create a self-service cloud environment on top of your vSphere infrastructure to pro... (more)

Building a VMware-Based OpenNebula Cloud in 20 Minutes

The OpenNebula Sandbox for VMware is the first of a series of Cloud Sandboxes that are being released by C12G Labs to quickly deploy an OpenNebula cloud for testing, development or integration. These will be useful when setting up pilot clouds to quickly test a new feature without having to install and configure an OpenNebula front-end. It is therefore intended for testers, early adopters, developers and also integrators. This first OpenNebula Sandbox allows the deployment of a complete VMware-based cloud infrastructure under 20 minutes. The appliance is available for download ... (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...
