Open Source Cloud Computing Platform

OpenNebula is an open source virtual infrastructure engine that enables the dynamic deployment and re-placement of virtualized services (groups of interconnected virtual machines) within and across sites. OpenNebula extends the benefits of virtualization platforms from a single physical resource to a pool of resources, decoupling the server not only from the physical infrastructure but also from the physical location.


OpenNebula can be primarily used as a virtualization tool to manage your virtual infrastructure in the data-center or cluster. This application is usually referred as private cloud, and with OpenNebula you can also dynamically scale it to multiple external clouds, so building a hybrid cloud. When combined with a Cloud interface, OpenNebula can be used as engine for public clouds, providing a scalable and dynamic management of the back-end infrastructure. So, do you want to transform your rigid and compartimentalized infrastructure, into a flexible and agile platform where you can dynamically deploy new services and adjust their capacity?. If the answer is yes, you want to build what is nowadays called a private cloud.

OpenNebula Express is an installer contributed by C12G that eases the installation and deployment of OpenNebula clouds. In few minutes you will get a fully operational cloud from a cluster with a a clean install of the operating system. This is the fastest track to cloud computing, enabling any organization to have an enterprise-grade cloud in four steps.

OpenNebula is the most advanced solution for Cloud Computing. It can be adapted into any existing datacenter to build a private, public or hybrid cloud. Due to this flexibility, OpenNebula can be configured in many different ways, and at times, for new users, it might be challenging to read through the documentation to decide about the structure of their deployment. The aim of this project is to provide a simple installer to deploy OpenNebula quickly and effortlessly.
