Bringing Private Cloud Computing to HPC and Science

HPC-optimized clouds provide access to flexible and elastic scientific and technical computing to solve complex problems and drive innovation. You can find bellow the slides of my keynote at EGI-TF 2013 where I described the most demanded features for building HPC and science clouds, and illustrated using real-life case studies from leading research and industry organizations how OpenNebula effectively addresses these challenges of cloud usage, scheduling, security, networking and storage. The keynote ended with a view of private cloud's future in HPC and science, and grid as the foundation of cloud federation.

OpenNebula: The European Management Platform to Build IaaS Clouds

Last Thursday, the blog of the European Commission Digital Agenda for Europe published an article entitled "OpenNebula: the only European open-source management platform to build IaaS clouds! A success story in exploitation of FP7 research results". It briefly shows how OpenNebula is playing an important role in driving and supporting the transition to cloud computing and thus accelerating the pace of innovation in Europe.

We are proud of being part of a project that is shaping the future of cloud computing!.

Key Challenges in Cloud Computing: Enabling the Future Internet of Services

"Key Challenges in Cloud Computing: Enabling the Future Internet of Services" is the title of our last article published in the August 2013 issue of the IEEE Internet Computing Magazine that describes how Cloud computing will play a major role in the future Internet of Services, enabling on-demand provisioning of applications, platforms, and computing infrastructures. The article describes the several technology challenges that must be addressed to turn this vision into reality. Specific issues relate to deploying future infrastructure-as-a-service clouds and include efficiently managing such clouds to deliver scalable and elastic service platforms on demand, developing cloud aggregation architectures and technologies that let cloud providers collaborate and interoperate, and improving cloud infrastructures' security, reliability, and energy efficiency.
