It’s been a pretty GigaOM-focussed week. To begin the week, my GigaOM Pro report on Europe’s Helix Nebula cloud project was published. Then Tuesday and Wednesday were dominated by activities in and around GigaOM’s first conference on this side of the Atlantic; Structu...
There is a growing momentum in the industry that is buzzing about the ‘Open Cloud’. Typically this refers to the open source software aspect of Cloud software, like OpenStack, or other options like OpenNebula. There is also the other dimension of open standards. This will become crit...
Now that OpenNebula has been listed by GigaOM on the list of main reasons why Europe really matters to cloud computing, I am receiving several emails asking about how OpenNebula is able, what’s its "secret recipe", to compete with other open-source projects, like OpenStack, CloudStack ...
What Role Does Open-source Play in Cloud Computing Innovation? is a guest post that I have written on GigaOM to show how open-source is playing an important role in driving and supporting the transition to cloud computing. According to our experience, the availability of open-source cl...
"Cloud Computing Architecture with Open Nebula – HPC Cloud Use Cases" is the title of the invited talk that I gave yesterday at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Division – NASA Ames. I provided an overview of cloud computing architecture with OpenNebula, with special focus on cloud dep...
What Is OpenNebula ? It is cloud management solution – industry standard open source cloud computing tool to manage the complexity and heterogeneity of distributed data center infrastructures. OpenNebula is a fully open-source management toolkit for on-premise Infrastructure as a S...
