Administrator Hands-on Tutorial (1/2)
Overview
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.

Methodology
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.

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

Contents
  • Host Subsystem: Monitoring configuration and cluster management
  • Storage Subsystem: Datastores configuration and image 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.

Length
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

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

Material
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.

Welcome and Project Update
We’re moving into a world of open cloud — where each organization can find the right cloud for its unique needs. A single cloud management platform can not be all things to all people, there will be a cloud space with several offerings focused on different environments and/or industries. The OpenNebula commitment to the open cloud flows directly out of its mission — to become the simplest cloud enabling platform — and its purpose — to bring simplicity to the private and hybrid enterprise cloud. OpenNebula exists to help companies build simple, cost-effective, reliable, open enterprise clouds on existing IT infrastructure. The OpenNebula Conference will be a great opportunity to remind our vision, vision and commitment, to look back at how the project has grown in the last 8 years, and to give a peek at what to expect from the project in the near future.

Success Story – How Inoreader Migrated From Bare-metal Servers to OpenNebula + StorPool
See how Inoreader migrated from Bare-metal servers to OpenNebula + StorPool. Inoreader has reached a tipping point where it was no longer sustainable to add hardware servers to store the billions of articles that hundreds of thousands of users read every day across the globe. With OpenNebula and StorPool we can now utilize those servers far more efficiently and no longer worry about performance and downtime.

OpenNebula in a continuous integration environment
At Dynatrace we use OpenNebula primarily in our CI environment to build and test our software.
In this talk i want to focus on our use of the econe API that is used to dynamically provision instances for the current build or test run. We will cover how we build our images with packer and puppet as well as how we maintain these images and our KVM hosts.

UCLouvain Case Study: VDI for 37,000 students with OpenNebula
The Université Catholique de Louvain has been using OpenNebula in IT academic environment for several years. We were so satisfied that when we decided to implement VDI we looked for a connection broker compatible with this cloud orchestrator.
Thanks to OpenNebula + UDS Enterprise VDI joint solution, we will soon be able to give our 37,000 students access to virtual classrooms as if they were in the standard computer classrooms, so that they could access the same software from anywhere, anytime and using any device. The first tests with the solution have been very successful and we are now looking at expanding it to the whole university.
In this session we will detail how the VDI infrastructure was built, the different components used and their role in the platform and how the IT staff deploys and manages the virtual desktops. We'll also explain how in the near future we will extend the use of OpenNebula to remote applications.

Eurac Research Use Case: OpenNebula user experience and performance indicators for Big Data analysis for environmental monitoring research
The Institute for Earth Observation (EO) at Eurac Research, in Bolzano (South Tyrol  - Italy), is using OpenNebula Cloud Management software to handle efficiently Big Data derived from satellites as well as from other environmental sensing techniques.
Data from different sensors are processed and integrated with models in order to produce application specific EO products and services for monitoring and understanding of complex processes in the mountain cryosphere (snow and glacier related processes) and the vegetation (mainly forest and grassland) in mountain areas, both challenged by climate change.
Within the last years Eurac Research has enhanced it's virtualization platform and storage solutions, with an open and scalable solution that combines OpenNebula Cloud management software with a unified and scalable storage, that is Ceph distributed storage system, which meets well the requirements of big data storage. Some EO specific use cases are described along with particular highlights on user experiences and key performance indicators important for Big Data analysis, in particular I/O access and networking throughput.
The use cases and results provided are related to the Sentinel Alpine Observatory (SAO) initiative platform, powered by a virtualized environment managed by OpenNebula, and to projects that make use of the available core services implemented, that are the H2020 project openEO ( http://openeo.org/ ) and the experience gathered at the OGC Earth Observation Exploitation Hackathon 2018 ( https://github.com/opengeospatial/EOEPHackathon2018 ). Further, the possible Integration of OpenNebula with other virtualization platforms has been evaluated and partially inspected.

5 Things We Wish We Knew Before Deploying OpenNebula in Production
We've been running OpenNebula in production at Nordeus for more than a year now. In the process, we've learnt that it's far from easy, especially when starting from scratch. There are so many questions that need to be answered. And, if you've never run a private cloud, or used any of its technologies before, these answers are hard to find. That's why, in this talk, we're going to help you find them.
We'll share with you how we started, what worked for us and what you need to consider before going into production. Our goal? To give you a few tips how to deploy and manage an OpenNebula cluster with more ease!
