OpenNebula Companion Tools - Admin's Little Helpers
CESNET has been using OpenNebula in academic/research environment since 2011. Over the years, we had to develop a bunch of small(ish) tools and helpers to make our lives easier. This talk will present a carefully selected subset of tools that we found the most useful, educational, or interesting. It will also reminisce about tools that are long gone, no longer necessary thanks to continuing OpenNebula development.

ONE-click deployment with Rancher
Rancher, developed by Rancher Labs, is a complete container management platform that makes it easy to deploy and run containers in production. What are the benefits and issues in deploying OpenNebula front-end components as a Rancher stack? In this talk, we will try to answer such questions through a demo in which we will set up an OpenNebula cluster by using the Rancher platform. Furthermore, we will show possible integrations between OpenNebula and Rancher to provide a private cloud-computing platform for VM and container management.

Torturing OpenNebula for Fun and Profit
NodeWeaver is an OpenNebula-based hyperconverged platform designed to run despite massive hardware, software and networking faults. The talk will cover the kind of issues we had preparing OpenNebula for execution in the strangest places (like behind a NMR machine, or in a pit in the desert), how to test it in ways that could be featured in an horror film, and what OpenNebula allows us to do that would be difficult in other platforms.

OpenNebula 5.4 and Beyond
In this talk, Rubén and Tino will lay our the novelties (not all of them, there are many!) present in 5.4, ranging from core new functionality to the big changes in vCenter. Also, the roadmap for 5.6 and future versions would be laid out, as far as it is consolidated (it won't be closed yet, but nearly so).

It would also be the perfect session for feature requests, so don't miss it!

Transforming an Old Supercomputer into a Cloud Platform
Currently, typical supercomputers have an expected useful life of 3 or 4 years. One way of another, after this time period, infrastructure is typically replaced or upgraded to face the increasing resource demand by users and companies. This always gives rise to the same question, namely, what should be done with the old hardware if it was replaced? Possible solutions come in the form of decommissioning, splitting up and using it for spare parts, or donating it, but in several cases, the hardware can still provide value when used for different tasks. In this talk we will describe how we have converted the old Tier1 Flemish supercomputer https://www.ugent.be/hpc/en/infrastructure/tier1 into a cloud platform using OpenNebula. During this conversion process, we faced several technical challenges. The first and foremost of these was how to recycle hardware that was designed for use in a classical HPC environment to use in a private cloud. We will describe which steps were taken to address isolating VM traffic through the existing InfiniBand interconnect using the VXLAN network technology. We will also address how we managed mapping our internal (university) and external (industry) users using the OpenNebula “remote” authentication plugin. Finally, we will discuss how we used the InfiniBand interconnect to share the Ceph storage backend and VM traffic in a secure manner. After a testbed phase, in which only pilot users are given access and provide feedback, the new UGent HPC Cloud platform called “Grimer” will be available in production.

Use OpenNebula to create a Free VDI Cloud Platform
In my session, I will address the following points:
-How easy is integrating OpenNebula with virtualization platforms through VDI solutions, and hence create a cloud alternative for free.
-Our experience with OpenNebula and how our clients like it.
-Stability with our VDI software.
-Universities using our solution also use OpenNebula alongside with VDI and Moodle.
-With OpenNebula, you can deploy VMs and integrate any public/private cloud platform.
