Starting this month, we will be publishing a monthly newsletter on our blog providing a recap of the previous month’s OpenNebula news, and giving an advance of what to expect in the coming month. So, without further ado, here is the June 2011 newsletter!
On the technology front, we provided a first glimpse into the upcoming features in OpenNebula 3.0, which will provide a lot of added stability in many backend components, and major improvements in networking and multi-tenancy support.
C12G announced an enterprise-class distribution of OpenNebula 2.2 and new professional services. They also contributed a scalability guide that addresses how to install and tune OpenNebula for optimal and scalable performance, a guide on integrating public clouds with OpenNebula for “cloudbursting”, and a guide on image contextualization.
Finally, Alberto Zuin contributed a detailed guide on setting up High Availability in OpenNebula with LVM.
Most notably, Florian Feldhaus and Piotr Kasprzak, from TU Dortmund, released the first version of their OCCI for OpenNebula project. This exciting new project aims to develop a complete, robust and interoperable implementation of OCCI 1.1 for OpenNebula.
This month, OpenNebula participated in the EGI User Virtualisation Workshop, which highlighted the wide deployment of OpenNebula in HPC and Grid systems.
OpenNebula developers continue to participate in workshops and conferences around the world. If you’d like to attend an OpenNebula talk or tutorial, or want to meet with developers, check out our list of upcoming events
To answer questions from the community more interactively, we held our first OpenNebula IRC sessions on May 9.
Finally, we announced that C12G and OpenNebula will contribute to the European Cloud strategy through their participation in the panel about Cloud Computing Fostering Innovation of the workshop Towards a Cloud Computing Strategy for Europe: Matching Supply and Demand.
