In this presentation, Prakashan will be sharing his experience in deploying OpenStack/Nova Essex release software in a private cloud-computing environment as in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The virtual computing laboratory (VCL) at Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE), UCLA has been exploring open source based software such as Eucalyptus, Nimbus and OpenNebula in the past two years. OpenStack/Nova is the preferred cloud software package for VCL research activities based on our experience so far.
Prakashan will discuss the OpenStack/Nova IaaS architecture and a live demo to deploy multiple operating system instances on x86_64 hardware running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. This cluster has 32 nodes and 256 cores of compute power. Our plan is to deploy Folsom release when this cluster becomes production ready.
OpenStack/Nova software is released under Apache 2.0 license, which makes it possible for academia and industry to contribute, distribute and use the software for both academic and commercial use free of charge.
Currently, there are 200+ commercial IT companies and universities participating in the OpenStack open source project in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. The companies include Rackspace, HP, IBM, Intel, Sina, Cisco, Ubuntu, RedHat, Suse, Nebula, Dell, Vmware, Mirantis, NEC, Piston, Yahoo, NetApp, CCAT and many others worldwide.
