Recently, we have shared with you our vision with the disaggregated cloud approach in the blog post A Sneak Preview of the Upcoming Features for Cloud Disaggregation. Today we are very happy to announce the initial release of the Host Provision prototype, which provides the capability to deploy new physical hosts on selected bare-metal cloud providers, to install and configure them as KVM hypervisors, and to add them into existing OpenNebula clusters as an independent host.
Everything included in a single run of the new command “oneprovision”!
For the initial release, we support the Packet Host and Amazon EC2 (i3.metal instance type) bare-metal providers. The tool is distributed as an operating system package for RHEL/CentOS 7, Debian 9, Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04, or the source code archive. The package should be installed on your OpenNebula front-end and used under the privileges of user
Source code and packages are ready to download from our GitHub repository.
Detailed documentation which covers how to install, use or customize the tooling is available here.
Last, but not least – it’s all open source!
We would love to hear all your comments, suggestions or help with the problems you may experience. Please use our community forum to get in touch with us.
