This is an intermediate level course designed to explain the configuration and management of the different subsystems of a cloud infrastructure. This course is for system Administrators who are primarily responsible for operating OpenNebula clouds.

This is an interactive course, where the attendees operate on their own labs with a 3-node OpenNebula cloud, which are provided during the course. OpenNebula provides an abstraction layer on top of the infrastructure and technologies deployed in the datacenter. In order for the attendees to get the best understanding possible of OpenNebula as a whole, the labs used during the course make use of the most common open-source technologies that can be used to deploy an OpenNebula cloud. For example, the hypervisor technology used during the course will be KVM, shared file-system for storage, and regular linux bridges and linux firewall for networking. Other technologies supported by OpenNebula will be addressed and discussed as well.

Specifically designed for:
  • IT Administrators
  • Data Center Staff
  • System Administrators
  • Systems Integrators
  • System Architects.

  • Host Subsystem: Monitoring configuration and cluster management
  • Storage Subsystem: Datastores configuration and image management
  • Network Subsystem: Network configuration and virtual network management
  • Virtualization Subsystem: Hypervisor configuration and VM management
  • Cluster Subsystem: Cluster configuration and management
  • Users Subsystem: AAA (Authentication, authorization and accounting) and VDCs
  • Scheduler: Scheduling configuration and policies

Hands-on Labs
Attendees are grouped into groups of one or two people. Each group receives a lab, consisting of one OpenNebula frontend node and two hypervisors, accessible through SSH. Attendees are the owners and administrators of their labs. They are able to launch virtual machine, make any configuration changes, debug any problems, access the GUI and the CLI.

4 hours

Skills Gained
  • Advanced configuration and operation of OpenNebula
  • Design advanced cloud environments
  • Understand how to customize the Cloud by developing scripts using the API

OpenNebula Introductory Tutorial, or working knowledge in OpenNebula administration, Linux administration, and administration of network, storage and virtual systems.

The instructor will rely on a set of PDF documents that will be explained throughout the course. These documents will be made available to the attendees right at the very beginning of the course. Attendees need a laptop to connect to their hands-on labs.
