Last Monday we were at LinuxCon Europe, held in the beautiful city of Barcelona. Rubén gave a talk about building IaaS clouds and the art of virtual machine management, while he created a small OpenNebula private cloud in his laptop from scratch. He even had time to import a couple of images from the Marketplace, and boot them.
We would like to thank the Linux Foundation for the invitation to participate in this event, giving us the opportunity to chat with some of our users. We also had the chance to talk about the future of the open cloud with our beautiful open source sisters. What sisters? you may ask. Well, this is how Mårten Mickos referred in his keynote to the main 4 open source cloud technologies Eucalyptus, CloudStack, OpenStack, and OpenNebula in reply to VMware, and I hope the term catches on.
